Nomad Lion, Masai Mara

Nomad Lion, Masai mara, Kenya. During the migration a large number of nomad lions are following the wilderbeasts into Masai mara for a "free meal". On day one of my safari I headed south to Sands river, a great rocky area with beautiful vistas bordering Tanzania's Serengeti. I was hoping to find nomad lions from Tanzania here and I did not get disappointed:) I shot several photos of this big boy and his brother for the following three days.
