is more focused and intense than a big cat hunting - unless it's
several big cats hunting together. African lions are among the few
big cats you'll find doing this - the only felines seen together
more often than alone, living in prides (extended families) for
the care of the cubs, mutual protection and cooperative hunting.
The silent cooperation among hunting lionesses is amazing to behold,
as they single out an animal, split up to maneuver into position
and then close in on the prey. They must be efficient, as there
are many mouths to feed. I had wanted to do three lionesses hunting
for some time, but it wasn't until my trip to Africa that I solved
the challenge of creating a strong, cohesive composition while dealing
with a dozen legs! I saw many an animal melt into the tall grass
there, using it for cover until they were ready to be seen. The
grasses and the camouflage they provide are an important element
in the success of the hunt." - Rosetta
