Lions at night
Wide eyes and coming alive at dusk
Lions start to come alive at dusk - trading their lazy energy to one of alertness as they ready themselves for a hunt in the coming night. In this heightened state the lions are extra perceptive to any change in their environment, for they are hungry for a chase - their pupils widen and their nostrils open as they ready themselves for challenges ahead. The saying goes that a lion sees you a hundred times before you see it, making it all the more thrilling to be in their company, photographing them in this exaggerated state.
