That moment when you realize you may be a little too close - I photographed this charging lion here with a 300mm lens, hardly a long range setup for this kind of subject matter but thankfully his interest was directed at a young male in the pride and not me. Nevertheless, my adrenaline spiked as the moment unfolded in a blink of an eye, embracing the reality of how fickle encounters like this can be if it all were to go sideways.

I mean, even with a focal length of 300mm, that's nothing in terms of the sprinting distance of a male lion running up to 50mph! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ You're brave - ' my adrenaline spiked' is not a term I would have used to define the terror experienced in this instance.
May God protect you. You do provide people with interesting news bravo๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿ˜Žso cool how the out of focus makes him look crazed and even scarier๐Ÿ‘

Can just imagine the thrill! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜
