Pakistani nature photographer Atif Saeed managed to capture this chilling stare of death in a safari park near Lahore.

Gawker’s io9 reports that Saeed got out of his vehicle to silently take a picture of the beast but he somehow attracted its attention.

Saeed recalls the death was as near as 10 feet from him because just after this clip, the lion took a leap at him. He, however, succeeded to quickly return to safety in his jeep.
