THE MORNING SHOW
Amboseli, Kenya - 2020
A glimpse of a moment caught on my remotely controlled camera. The lioness who accompanied the lion then went off with the camera.
It’s all about the small things and because all this happened just before 6.50 am, there was enough morning dew to give the lion’s mane a tiny rinse.
We recovered the camera some time later and it was quite a thrill to see the last image the bitten camera had taken. Remotes are a low percentage play, but when they come off and the subject is looking strong, they transcend hand held work because of the proximity and the angle of view.
He really did put on The Morning Show.
There is no doubt that this photograph will be in much demand. I certainly want it for my wall.
