Was photographing the rhino's but at the foreground you see the male lion

We once had two lionesses on a buffalo kill, with a rhino at the waterhole behind us and an ellie stroll by - so 4, albeit one dead one! So suppose only three but no - no photo!!

Not so usual to find lions and leopards on the same shot. i think they try to avoid each other ...

The mite that gets 5 out of 5 deserves a honorary medal from this forum.... just to get a pic of a leopard and a lion in the same shot is about 1 in a million (as seen by RichardJ in Sprocky's thread).

I can see how you can get 4 out of 5 at a waterhole somewhere - Buffs, Ellies and Rhino will tolerate each other and there might be a lion lazing in the shade or a leopard in a tree... but 5 out of 5??? Highly unlikely :naughty:
