200mm, 1/400s, f/8, ISO250

What do I mean by that title? Well, to me, this image tells three different stories, which is always useful for a professional photographer like myself.

The first is perhaps the most obvious: this is a tree-climbing lion, which is a relatively rare sight (though not in Ishasha, part of Queen Elizabeth National Park, where this photo was taken).

The second is one of humour. Lions are often shown as the magnificent animals they are, so showing a mire light-hearted side of them can be quite useful, and serve quite different purposes.

Finally, you may have noticed that this lioness is wearing a collar. She is being tracked for research purposes, which means this photograph can be used to illustrate all kinds of conservation-related topics.
