13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Early Morning

We left camp very early in the Morning looking for the lion Scarface who had been mating with a young lioness for the past 2 days. I wanted to photograph him at first light. When we found them she was awake and he was sleeping right behind her.
