This lioness (Panthera leo) was lagging behind her apparently hungry pride on an early morning stroll, stopping occasionally perhaps to observe the hunting potential in the hope of a bite before settling in for the day. Usually the males of the pride lag behind, and clearly this movement of lions was transitory rather than a hunting expedition. The pride was moving towards a nearby thicket to rest up.

Cindy Sherman is a United States based photographer who works in series, typically photographing herself in a range of costumes, shooting alone in her studio, assuming multiple roles as author, director, make-up artist, hairstylist, wardrobe mistress, and model. In the late 1990ís she moved into motion picture directing. She is attributed with this quote:
“The still must tease with the promise of a story the viewer of it itches to be told”
