12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Queen of the Serengeti

We took a game drive in the afternoon which is not the best time to see animals in active pursuits. Afternoons are for siesta! This lioness was drowsing, perched on top of the tallest rock. As we approached she picked up her lazy head and posed in all her glory.
