Bellissima e Pericolosa - Beautiful and Dangerous

Eravamo a Moremi in Botswana,quando incontrammo
questa bellissima leonessa.
Pareva tranquilla,ma dopo poche foto decise
di attaccarci anche se eravamo in macchina
(tutti i finestrini aperti).
Era paurosa mentre ci correva addosso:i suoi occhi
erano fissi su di noi mentre il suo corpo volava
letteralmente sull'erba e saltava i cespugli.
L'ultima foto è sfocata:mi dispiace.
E'l'ultima prima di buttare la macchina fotografica
e chiudere tutto.
Si fermò a pochi metri fissandoci e se ne andò:
voleva solo cacciarci via.
---We were in Moremi,Botswana,when we met this
beautiful lioness.She was very quiet,but after
few shots she attacked us,even if we were in the 4x4
(all the windscreens open).
She was very scary while she was running against us:
her eyes were fixed to us while she was flying on the
grass and jumping on the bushes.
The last picture is very blur:I am sorry.
It's the last before to throw away the camera to
close everything.
She stopped few meters close to us,for two second
she watched us and she turned away.
It was just a mock charge,just to say "go away!".

Fantastic photos. I have never been charged by a lion but an elephant yes. I never knew our landrover could go so fast in reverse :)) Diane

Hi Andrea. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your wildlife photos - especially the Bateleur, one of my favourite birds.
