Masai Mara, Kenya

I took this photo while on safari in Kenya, in the Masai Mara game reserve. It was the afternoon of the last day of our journey and it was the first time we had gotten this close to a lion. Safari sightings are often as much about luck as anything else. This was one of several lions who had just killed a wildebeest (the carcass was laying a few yards away) and they were resting after the kill. It was an incredible scene.
