14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Lion in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

This photo was taken in the Ngorongoro Crater, a conservation area in Tanzania, in October 2016. The lion was relaxing under a tree after killing and eating a young antelope. I came home with over 800 pictures on my camera, and this is my favorite photo from my entire trip.
