Ever Wondered What a Lion Looks Like JUST Before It Attacks?

Pakistani photographer Atif Saeed was out doing the day’s business – nature photography – in Lahore’s Safari Zoo park when he got out of his jeep to capture a candid shot of a Lion, which caught the lens’ noise and charged towards him, giving Atif the opportunity to take this fierce shot.

Saeed explained to Dailymail, “I was thinking – I must show the character and status of lion and this was the only way I could think of to achieve this.. I was sitting in front of him just near my car and the door of my car was open. I was sat on ground few feet away, so he was treating me like his prey…”

Saeed does admit it was a grave act, “I was laughing at that time, but now when I think back about the incident I don’t think I would be able to do it again. It was a pretty close encounter.”

But who’s complaining!
