What a great shot! The lighting, sharpness and DOF are perfect. Incidentally, with a short lens, I think it's as well you were in a hide, as I understand that these beasts can be somewhat irrascible!

Almost for sure this was at Zimanga.

These photos from there are almost getting boring.

Just kidding. That place is on the bucket list.

How in the world did you prep the lighting for that from a hide? GREAT shot and very well executed!

Thanks, the lighting here (led's) is well set up. The trick is in getting your exposure right.

Well if the hard bit is the exposure, you did very well.

Superb image ... and memory.
