18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Lion King

A pride of lions on an elephant carcass and I waited till the king of the pride came and gave this natural history moment whilst it was trying to stretch on the carcass before eating it which eventually ended up in a beautiful Lion silhouette against sun set.
