13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

During my 10 month of living in Africa, I lived on a small farm. Each night I fell asleep to the sound of lions roaring and purring. One day I went on a walk and found this big guy living at the farm next door. I do not think he liked being woken up from his afternoon nap.
