17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
When the king of jungle is about to take a nap!

I was determined to go for a safari ride. I have chosen public transport instead of a safari car because of the low budget. And I was ready with my camera to freeze the moment. A bit disappointed initially as I was not able to find any wild animal. But vehicle stopped all of sudden and it was lion resting peacefully just beside a pond! That's the moment I photographed him.
