Guess What Happened Moments After This Picture Was Taken? Yup, You’ve Got It…

Here's the ferocious image which almost cost the photographer his life...

They say that a picture says a thousand words, but if we were looking down the lens and saw this on the other end, we’d probably hear just one, possibly a thousand times: run.

The amazing shot was taken by Atif Saeed, a 38-year-old photographer from Lahore, Pakistan, and moments after capturing the snapshot, the angry-looking lion attempted to follow through on the malicious intentions portrayed on its face.

Indeed, Saeed was only a few feet away from the beast when he got out of his car and whipped out the camera, and clearly the lion wasn’t too happy about the impromptu photo call.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the photographer said: “I was sitting in front of him near my car and the door was open. I was sat on the ground a few feet away, so he was treating me like his prey.

“The story finished in a few seconds as the lion aggressively jumped towards me and I just about scrambled into my car. I was laughing at the time… But it was a pretty close encounter.”

It’s certainly not hard to take Atif’s word for the story given that the lion clearly looks like it wants to maul him to death.

You could even say that we’re almost certain he’s not (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) lion. Come on, that was funny. No? Did you understand the pun? You did. Okay. We’ll try a little harder next time.
