Time Flies

During a safari in Tanzania, we spotted a tree with at least dozen of lions on it. Most of them were resting or sleeping. I found this tree trunk with one lion that was trying to catch some shade. It was in the hottest hours of the day, the flies were around him, and I captured his glance at them.
