Lions at Dawn in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

The sun had just risen above the savanna in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda when we saw our first lion in the wild, a young male, seemingly exhausted from his first meal of the day. He was soon joined by two other young males, who all lay down together.
