This reflect the brutality of some and vulnerability of others Repost @natgeo ・・・ Image by @beverlyjoubert This image is included in National Geographic's Women of Vision exhibition currently open at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in downtown West Palm Beach, FL. In the summer months during buffalo calving season, this lioness saw an opportunity for an easy kill and took it. "It's never easy to sit and wait for the lions to attack another animal. The only way I can protect myself is through the lens. The lens diffuses the emotion until you stop taking the image. Then you watch the moment again and have respect for the life. Instead of celebrating I say 'I got the shot'. That is the only way I have managed to release those tragic moments we witness over and over in the field."
