Marc Lindsay-Rae from Africa Direct. was at Londolozi Game Reserve recently. Have a look at some of the stunning photographs he managed to capture of the Scar-nosed Majingilane fighting with the sub-adult Tsalala lioness. As mentioned in previous posts, this unfortunate young lioness has led a disrupted and traumatic life due to her poor relationship with the dominant coalition. The scar-nose and dark-maned males in particular have been seen to maul her on a number of occasions.
Marc was kind enough to divulge his camera settings for the sighting.
“I was shooting with a Nikon D3s with the 200-400mm Nikon f4 lens. My settings were as follows. ISO 1600 because of the low light, to increase my shutter speed to 1000th of a second. Shot at 340mm at f4″
