This is an impressionist picture; as it was taken at a considerable distance with a hand held zoom.
It can be compared to an impressionist painting that even the grass is a bit fuzzy.
There is a silence in the wilderness just before this animal appears.
Many animals are so frightened and fled before or when the lion appears.
He is the king of beasts; a symbol of strength and bravery.
Picture taken by my wife in Namibia, Africa last month.
