It is rare to capture a perfect reflection of a lion and this picture is – to the best of our knowledge – fairly unique. There are many shots of lions drinking water, but these rarely capture the animal’s elegance and the water is often disturbed. In this photograph the surrounding water is calm enough to offer an unblemished canvas and consequently there is great resolution in a reflective image – the detail in the right eye is particularly satisfying. – David Yarrow
