Early Morning Run

It was early in the Mara and "Scarface" had just broken up a fight between 6 lionesses. A young female had ventured into a territory controlled by five lionesses and almost paid with her life for this mistake. Tensions were high and one of the five lionesses became aggressive with him. He chased her away.
