File:Lion waiting in Namibia.jpg


العربية: أسد ( Panthera leo) مستلق في ناميبيا تعليق المصور: كنت أقف على منصة للرؤية بعيدة حوالي 25 متر. ولم يكن يفعل شيئا على الإطلاق عدا الظهور بمنظر ملكيّ. كان هناك بعض اللبؤات في أسفل الطريق أيضا تزأر وتتسابق لكنها كانت في الظل لذا لم أستطع إلتقاط صور جيدة لها. [...] كانت تلك الأسود من أوكونجيما أفريكات.
وهي مؤسسة تعتني بالسنوريات المصابة أو الميتمة إلى أن يمكن إعادتها إلى البرية مجددا. وهم أيضا يعلمون المزارعين أساليب تربية الماشية مع السنوريات الكبيرة.
English: Lion ( Panthera leo) lying down in Namibia. Photographer's comment: "[I was] standing on a viewing platform about 25m away. He wasn't doing much at all other than looking regal. There where [sic] some lionesses down below growling and pacing but they were in the shade so I didn't get very good pictures of them. [...] They were from Okinjima AfriCat foundation who look after injured or orphaned cats until they can be returned to the wild. They also educate farmers on practices on how to raise stock with large cats."
Français : Lion ( Panthera leo) allongé (Namibie). Commentaires du photographe: [J'] étais sur une plateforme d'observation à 25 mètres environ. Il ne faisait pas grand chose à part régner. Il y avait des lionnes qui trottaient et feulaient, mais elles étaient à l'ombre et je n'ai pas pu faire de belles photos.[...] Ils venait de la réserve d'Okonjima appartenant à Africat, une fondation qui soigne des félins blessés ou orphelins jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient capables de retourner à une vie sauvage. La fondation enseigne aussi aux fermiers des environs des pratiques d'élevage adaptées aux zones ou vivent de grands félins.
Русский: Лежащий Лев в Намибии.Комментарий фотографа: [Я]стоял на смотровой площадке в 25 метрах от него. Он ничего не делал, только царственно смотрел. Ниже там было несколько львиц, но они были в тени, поэтому у меня не получилось их хорошего изображения. [...]Они были из Окинджима АфриКэт,организации,которая присматривает за ранеными или осиротевшими кошками, пока они не смогут вернуться в природу.
