Daily Grateful: A Close Encounter with a Beautiful Lion

January 13, 2014

National Geographic photographer Mattias tells an amazing story of two creatures: one is human, one is a beautiful lion. Quite an experience (good thing she was probably full!). I absolutely love this mindful, very “zen” explanation from the photographer:

“I’m an emotional person, sort of a vulnerable person in many ways. I don’t, for example, think that to do what I do, you sort of a ‘Tarzan”…because you have to be the contrary. You have to be soft, hopefully intelligent; you have to read the environment–you have to be modest.¬†Otherwise I would have been eaten, I think, a long time ago.” ~ Mattias Klum, wildlife photographer

(H/T to Dan Woo for letting me know about this!)
