17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Watchful Pride

I was on safari at Maasai mara national park in Kenya and we were searching for a famous pride of lions for 3 days without a success. On day 4, just about half an hour to the park from our camp, there they are. There were about 25 plus females and sub-adults and spread across the plains and this particular group stole my attention at once, with their glittering eyes and watchful behavior.
