Images taken by a Dubbo photographer of a lion pride resting in a tree in Tanzania have spread across the world.
Bobby-Jo Clow was leading a photography tour in Central Serengeti when she came across the incredible sight.
"To start off with we thought there were two or three lions in the tree and as we got closer we discovered it was about 15," Ms Clow said.
"One of the other people on the tour counted 23 at one stage but from my own counting and the photos I think it was 15.
"It's quite common for lions to be in the trees in the wet season but to see a whole pride in a tree is quite rare."
Ms Clow and the others on safari spent about two hours watching the lions interacting, including a male trying to breed with a female.
"The lions look like they don't belong in a tree they're so clumsy," she said.
Since the tour in May, Ms Clow said she has had requests for the photo from all corners of the globe.
It's not the first time Ms Clow's photos have garnered international interest.
Two years ago she captured a wild cheetah that jumped onto her safari vehicle, just inches from Ms Clow's face.
"The Serengeti and I have a very good relationship. I always get to see some bizarre sights.
"I could be in the most dangerous situation on the planet and I'm thinking 'how do I capture this?'"
While she lives and works in Dubbo, Africa holds a close place in the photographer's heart.
"I love Africa for its people, for its wildlife, its smells, even the way the wind blows along the grass," she said.
Recently, Ms Clow and a friend established the Askari Project to raise money and awareness of elephant conservation.
The proceeds of selected photographs are going to elephant conservation organisation The Tsavo Trust in Kenya.
"I feel like I should be doing something with my photography, rather than it just going on my wall," Ms Clow said.
