This pride of lions are striking a pose inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ in this epic photo sequence.
Andre Cloete, 42, from Pretoria, South Africa, took the creepy photographs while visiting the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Tiak Tiak River earlier this year.
The images show the pride standing together staring ominously at the camera in scenes reminiscent of the Hitchcock thriller.
Andre said he was fortunate as movement further downstream attracted their attention and for one brief moment, the whole group looked in the same direction.
The photographer said: “I am very happy to have a herd of cats looking the same way for once.
“I didn’t do anything to attract their attention but it was movement further down that did.”
