To quote William Shakespeare, from his play Henry IV.  ''The better part of valour is discretion''.


I had the privilege to witness part of a hungry Lion pride attempting to ambush an Elephant in Lower Zambezi, Zambia - of course there was only ever going to be one outcome..........

That paw is very, very clever ;) That really is brilliant work there Carol, nice work with the plate like design with the vignette adding to it and the subjects, WOW. A lot of fine work in this one and yeah, that paw makes it. A small touch that turns this into something else.

Neat idea, it doesn't look as if the elephant planned to be on the lions' menu.

Spectacular! Pure art, that's for sure. I love the entire image, right down to the Lioness walking out of the frame. Nice work.
