Masai Mara Trip October 2007

John and Carole

We had a couple of "southerners" with us. We thoroughly enjoyed their company, sense of humor and drawls, although we had to keep on reminding them who won the war.

John's shooting style with the Canon 500 mm lens and the 5D camera

 

Looks like John lost the drinking game last night

 

While John was sick to his stomach from the night before Carole was enjoying her breakfast in the Mara

 

A good nights sleep and John is good to go until the next night's drinking game

 

Keeping an eye out for anything that moves

 

Her hard work paid off with these two young lion brothers

 

We had plenty of time to watch their behavior and set up for our shots

 

The first brother walked to a waterhole just to our right

 

And the second followed right behind

 

Our guide know these lions were going for a drink, so he has us lined up for our shot before they got there.

This gave Dr. P time to set up the camera for John to get a nice shot of them drinking

 

And here it is

 

After their drink they walked right past us and John set up for another nice shot

 

They walked so close they could easily jump into the vehicle. No worries though because Carole is keeping a wary eye on them

 

With Carole protecting us John got another good one
