Tree Lions, Tanzania - Tony Murtagh

Tree Lions, Tanzania – Tony Murtagh

We have featured Tony a few times now: http://www.photobotos.com/tag/tony-murtagh/, and he continues to supply us with breathtaking images. For the second day running we have a shot willing me to buy a new telephoto lens! Please stop by Tony’s website: http://tonysphotos.eu/ and blog: http://www.myblog.tonysphotos.eu/

Enter Tony:

We were out driving on the Serengeti when our driver guide spotted lions in the grass. We stopped to look at them and then saw them climbing the tree and started shooting!

We knew lions climbed trees in Manyara, but had not even seen a lion when we there, let alone ones climbing trees. So to see them in the Serengeti was something special.

I had only taken up photography after going on safari to Kenya in 2010 but this time I had a new DSLR and hired a zoom lens – a Canon EF  100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM – just for the trip, and that was what I was using on the day.

Camera: Canon EOS 1100D
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM
Settings: f/8, 1/500 sec, ISO 200, 400mm

Share and Enjoy

  2. Wow! what a great photo! Love those cats!

  3. I’d hate to be the fireman who was called to fetch these cats out of the tree. What an energetic image, today.
