A Lion Celebrates the Sunrise
If you look real close, you can see a male lion lying in the grass in the foreground. This lion is one of the 2 males that lead a pride of approximately 14 lionesses and cubs. Our guide thinks the males are brothers, since it’s not common for there to be more than one adult male in a pride. The lions had killed a male Cape Buffalo during the night, the males had eaten their fill, and now the lionesses and cubs (and a stray jackal) were eating. The brilliant Tanzanian sunrise was stunning, setting fire to the male’s abundant mane with delightful backlight.
Photographed in the Serengetti National Park, Tanzania.
UNESCO World Heritage site.
