14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Tree of Pride
How many lions can you fit on one tree? Depends on the tree, and depends on the size of the pride. This family consists of 11 lioness/cubs, all resting on one branch of a tree. We drove back to the lodge in the Serengeti, it was past sunset, the cameras were stowed, and the next thing was the driver announcing "prepare for a Kodak moment". Then we saw them... It was the highlight of the whole week.
