Lewis Norman, "Thirsty Pride Ruaha National Park Tanzania." First Place Advanced - Nature. Judges Comments: striking, rare moment, strong composition. "We had been following a local pride of 21 lions during our morning game drive. This pride considers our camp on the Mwagusi River as part of its territory. The 'Alpha' female struck out a measured, deliberate pace toward the river. Suspecting that the pride would be drinking there, we drove our vehicle to a spot some three meters from a water hole. Sure enough, the lions of the pride, pacing in single file, approached the water hole. They moved around our vehicle at distances less than a meter from us, then lined up shoulder to shoulder to drink." Canon EOS 20D, Tamron 28-300 lens at 28 mm, f11.0, 1/320 sec, ISO 400.
