While watching a pride of lions hunt a young sub-adult turned to within 5m of me and took a dislike to my camera lense.
After a few moments stare off between us he turned and proceeded to stalk a buffalo nearby.

The mesmerizing look of a lion staring you down from such close quarters is something exilerating that I tried to capture with a close up portarit that focuses on his eye.
The setting sun capturing the deep golden color of his eye and giving his coat a beautiful bronze sheen.
