It was morning 0730 during one of my safari at Gir National Park, when I was taking picture of some birds at water point. Then suddenly my guide given me indication that lioness coming out of the forest towards water point. Suddenly lioness got alert as a group of Spotted Deer (Axis axis) was coming towards water point, as they were not aware about the presence of lioness at water point. Lioness hide her self behind water point, but one deer among the group located hidden lioness and given alert call and all deers run away and lioness was just looking at them with watered mouth.

Location: Gir National Park, Junagadh, Gujarat, India
