14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Young Lion- Kruger National Park, South Africa

On our early morning trek in Kruger National Park, we saw a pride waiting for its mother to return. Quick not to disturb the pride we pulled up as close as possible and stayed very still to capture this innocent shot of a young lion that looked ready to play.
