Resting Lions, Tanzania ~ Daily Zen
It is only in difficult situations
that we can see our true face,
the other is just a mirror that reflect what we really are.
If we are able to use these situations
there are great opportunities to grow in maturity,
understanding, peace and freedom.
If instead we just put the blame on the other
then we stagnate
and remain trapped in our illusions.

I took this “once-in-a-lifetime” shot at Klein’s Camp in the Serengeti, Tanzania. We came upon these lions at 7:17 in the morning. I scrambled for my two camera bodies (Nikon D4 and D3s and 200mm-400mm and 500mm) and got the shot! Exactly six minutes later the first lion got up and within another five minutes, three were sleeping and the other three had gone off into the bush! I have been taking wildlife photos for over 20 years, but this has got to be my special moment!
