14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Male Lion at Sunrise, KZN, South Africa
Sunrise at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is spectacular in and of itself, but this morning my friend and I were lucky enough to ride with Beke Ndlovu, a seasoned guide at the park. From the road Beke had spotted a brother and sister pair of juvenile lions sleeping. As the juvenile male got up to go to another spot, this adult male roared loudly and emerged from behind a bush nearby.
