While on Safari our guide was looking for a particular lion pride when we noticed a storm on the horizon. African storms come up quickly and can be quite violent. As our guide was "buttoning up" the open air vehicle with canvas sides, I saw a lone impala cross the ridge line. We knew he was watching for lions too but stopped for just a moment to give us a good looking over and I got the shot.
I did not have time to change settings (things happen quickly in the bush) otherwise I would have opened the lens a bit and lowered the ISO
