How I Got the Shot: “Shadow Mate”

I got this shot in May 2017 when we were in Hwange, one of our favourite National Parks in Zimbabwe. We were being spoilt by WEZ with a photographic prize at the Little Makololo Lodge in the Wilderness Safari Area just past Ngweshla.

We had seen a young lion following a herd of buffalos - ever hopeful, but being alone he was very nervous and was stalking but without the needed zest. As we were sitting watching him we noticed a troop of baboons, very nervous and mindful of the lion in their midst.
