Maddie Meltzer, 13, of Los Angeles took this photo near Kruger National Park, South Africa, on a school trip last summer. Every day at 6 a.m., the visitors would go on a walk with their guide at the Tshukudu Game Lodge. “This particular morning, while watching the lions, I was able to capture this lion and a Labrador dog in this aggressive moment, while they were actually playing!” Maddie said. To capture the shot, she used a Nikon Coolpix S50 with autofocus.
