Lioness

It was late afternoon and the sun was setting providing for some amazing light. This lioness happened to be seated on her perch, getting lazy as lions do. She yawned, and while doing so, all the bugs (flies?) on her face became startled from their slumber. Notice the curved tongue and the sharp fangs! This is easily one of my top five favorites from the trip.
