"Together" by Federico Veronesi

"Together" was taken in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It captures a unique moment when a Lioness and her male partner woke up from their siesta and approached the edge of the rock to look at the future and the world around them together.

"When I pulled up next to this huge rocky outcrop in the eastern Serengeti one mid-afternoon in February, I had no idea what I would find on the rock or hidden in its crevices. I was just driving slowly around the rock when suddenly a Lioness came up to the highest boulder followed by a huge dark-maned male. She walked to the edge and stared at the horizon. I always have three camera bodies with three lenses ready on the seat next to me. I grabbed one and shot this magnificent scene right away, without even turning off the engine as there was just no time. In wildlife photography planning, patience, preparation, are all important. But sometimes you also need to react fast to unexpected encounters and situations. Moments such as this one, where animals pose so perfectly, are very fleeting and wildlife doesn't offer second chances."

The print is a very limited edition of 1 plus 1 Artist Proof at this super large size specially created for WildAid.

The print is framed in blackwood with linen mat.

Measurements: 98"w x 70"h
