African Lion
Photographer: Andrew Skinner
Location: Savuti Marsh, Botswana
It was late afternoon and we had been tracking this male lion for some time, he was moving with speed and purpose. In the distance we noticed the Savuti channel thats feeds the marsh. He was heading in that direction so we went ahead in anticipation that he may cross. We positioned our landrover at a crossing point in the channel and managed to capture a perfect mirror image of him crossing with the beautiful blue sky also reflecting in the water.
