20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Male Lion at Sunrise

This is a photo of a male lion at sunrise shot in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in Kenya. He is one of two mature males that lead a pride there. Unfortunately, I understand that one of them killed a somewhat famous female leopard called "Fig."
