Repy to Jenny
by: Bob

They certainly were. They played and actually stalked a Kudu who was coming in for a drink. He saw them and fled before the charge. After which they just walked down the road and into one of the recetly burned areas. The shots on the log are at about 100 yards with a 600mm. Some of the others are much closer. They actually passed within 5 ft of our vehicle. A swiss couple was kind enough to send us some photos of shery and I taking photos of the lions from inside the truck. We were the only the two vehicles there as night was approaching.

Great interaction
by: Jenny

You got some really great interaction pictures Bob, I love the hug one and something in the paw. They seem to be very relaxed around cars.
