In the pride

I was able to take this shot as this Lioness walked very slowly past our vehicle, allowing me to get the light rim and also a decent portion of light on its face. Fascinating how she seems to completely ignore our presence.
Canon ID IV, Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 II, ISO 640, 1/2000 sec @f/4 and -0.67 ev.
Edited in Aperture, mainly adding some light in the darker areas and working a little on the eyes.
