Did you handheld all your shots or did you use some sort of harness or clamps on the car doors?
Your shots were truly sharp.

Fabulous shots!
You were 200mm close to the sleeping lions and you had high beams on them?
(not to mention the 1DX shutter is kinda loud)
Isn't that like dangerous? LOL

Yes we were that close! The animals are used to seeing the vehicles and it doesn't seem to bother them at all for you to get close its quite strange!

But if you step off the vehicle and break the "profile" its a different matter and the animals will react completely differently!
