Bhushan Pandya is a famous wildlife conservationist and photographer. His wife Preeti Pandya took a shot of 18 Gir lions in one frame. This was when the pair had gone to visit the well known Gir forest in Gujarat during World Environment Day, earlier last month. Reportedly, this has been the highest number of Gir lions that have been shot in a single frame in the history of the jungle.

During an interview with Indian Express Bhushan said that they had got first hand information that two prides having a total of 20 lions were spotted at the Dedakadi area of Gir since the past few days.

It was on June 5, when Bhushan and his wife visited Gir and were blessed to see two prides-one comprising two lionesses and five cubs and the other comprising four lionesses and nine cubs. Preeti captured the 18 lions of the two prides in one frame.
