Lions Crossing a Bridge

I was able to observe these lions sisters hunting together every day during my stay at Chitabe Lodge in Botswana, and grew to feel very connected to them. One was always on the lookout for the next meal, while the other (the one walking towards us in this picture) was very playful and was always leaping on her sister.
