13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pride Up Close

It was our last day on safari and we only had a morning game drive to do. We had no idea that one of our most thrilling moments lay just ahead. Our guide spotted the ride on the move and placed us down the road and waited. Within a couple of moments the pride was upon us! This is one of my favorite shots from the entire trip.
