Lion Surprises Photographer With Scary Roar, Then Smiles at Him

You can’t think a better job than a wildlife photographer if you are a animal lover, you get a unique chance once in a lifetime encounters with the nature and its majestic creatures. A photographer named Gren Sowerby is among the lucky ones to get amazing photos on the wildlife, the 69-year-old photographer from England had dedicated the last four decades of his life to his passion as a wildlife photographer. The photographer was on a safari when he spotted a majestic Lion around 40-50 feet far from him. So he prepared for some beautiful shots with the king of the jungle. Only the king decided to play some tricks with the photographer.

“I lent in to take a photo when he let out a huge roar — I got the shock of my life,” Sowerby told to the South West News Service. “He roared to say: ‘I’m the King of the Jungle’ and then I couldn’t believe it when he smiled at me like when someone winks at you to say like: ‘Haha!’”

The lion shocked the photographer with a big scary roar, then he immediately started to smile at him. Of course, no matter how scary it was, Gren stayed there and captured the unique moments.

“I was really happy with the photos, I only looked at them properly when I got home. I regularly go on these safaris and really enjoy photographing wildlife. They have grown up around the safari so they’re used to cars and tourists,” Gren Sowerby says. “The King of the Jungle is always something you’ve got to capture and I’m so pleased I got the shot.”
