Those lion eyes


When photographer Hannes Lochner set up his camera at a water hole in South Africa’s Kalahari, he tried hiding it from curious lions because “they might play with it or carry it off,” he writes. “On this particular evening, I was in my vehicle just as the sun was setting, the dust in the air creating a special kind of Kalahari light, and a pride of lions arrived. By repeatedly clicking the shutter, I coaxed the ever curious cubs forward.”
