Witnessing animals drink is always a privilege. Animals are very vulnerable while drinking which makes it interesting to study how their behavior changes, especially for plant eaters. Lions being lions, their behavior didn't change that much. Only a big elephant could make them a bit nervous.

For us, a successful picture of a drinking animal needs to show the tongue of the animal which, with three lions, is quite the challenge. Luckily the animals were thirsty after they killed a medium sized elephant the night before, so we had the time. This was our best shot. Next time I take photo's of an animal I will focus more on including the entire reflection of the lions in the picture. I believe that is a missed opportunity here.
