Lions and Rainbows

The females of the pride and their young cubs were re-locating after a light rain. For a period of about 75 seconds they walked directly in-front of a rainbow that formed. I love this shot because of the incredibly unusual timing, and because not only does it highlight the lions and rainbow, but you also get a baobab in-frame, which is one of the most iconic of the African trees.
