Los Angeles-based British photographer Simon Needham opens up a stunning world of wildlife for us to enjoy from up close. The highlight of his work is the awe-inspiring portraits of lions from different angles that show their beauty and powerful presence. But most importantly, he shows the importance of these magnificent creatures as they are becoming a threatened species with only about 20,000 left in the wild.
"I spent two and a half years in the Kabini Forest, between December 2017 and January 2020, on a filming permit," Jung told Bored Panda. "This filming permit allowed [me and the team] to make a documentary on the black panther for National Geographic."
