Jessica, a tree-climbing lioness from Queen Elizabeth National Park's Ishasha sector, yawns in the branches of a large sycamore fig tree. People ask me how long these lions spend up in the trees and when they get down from them. The answer is that the lions in this region have an almost pattern-like behavior, climbing up in the early morning (around 7 or 8 am), they sit or sleep up in the trees for (usually) the whole day and get down around 7-7:30 pm! The only other time they climb down immediately is when it rains. Thunder showers = slippery branches! Shot for @insidenatgeo @sesexplore and @natgeowild
Springfield Armory M6 Scout in .22LR and .410 Bore
A Over and Under rifle/shotgun, the M6 was used by the U.S. Air Force as a survival tool incase of a pilot crashing in the wilderness or behind enemy lines. It was meant to be used to hunt small game in the event that the pilot or crewman is left for days without food and could still be used for defensive purposes. This version has a custom shotgun shell tube which contains an additional 4 shells.
Unlike nearly all other firearms, there is no "furniture" on the M6 Scout like a butt stock or a forearm—the only parts which are not steel are the rubber butt plate and cheek rest. The M6 stock is stamped sheet steel, while the removable barrel assembly is forged steel. The stock holds four .410 shells and 15 .22 LR cartridges in the civilian version. The stock of the commercial version in .22 Hornet stores 12 rifle rounds and 4 shotgun shells. The original military stock held 9 .22 Hornet shells and 4 .410 shells.
The USAF M6 Survival Weapon used iron sights, while the M6 Scout commercial model includes provision for mounting a telescopic sight, which would improve accuracy with the rifle barrel.
With a rifle barrel mounted above a .410 shotgun barrel, this is known as a superposed "over-under" design. The barrel assembly is connected to the stock/action group by means of a removable hinge pin. Whether folded or disassembled, the overall length for storage is approximately 18.5 inches making it very easy to store within a backpack.
Springfield's commercial production M6 was made in .22 Long Rifle in addition to the .22 Hornet used in the USAF M6.

“We are traveling Europe in a campervan and we’re having the best time together! 🐾
Part of the reason is that our pawrents prepared well for this trip. This is our home, and though it’s tiny, we’ve got everything we need! Such as this #impactdogcrate that forms a cozy den for the both of us. 🐶🐶”
