We had come to the end of our stay in the Serengeti and had not seen any lions close-up. Our driver/guide said he had one last spot to check out on the way back. We approached the outcrop op rocks and quietly moved around a couple of big rocks and there they were: a whole pride of lions. They were very relaxed and snoozing, obviously had a kill that morning. They looked like the definition of contentment. There were a few cubs playing and harassing their mothers. It was a lovely scene and the thought of getting out of the vehicle and stroking these cats came into my head, very, very briefly...

Nice light and nice pose.  It's too bad about the branch intruding into the lion's face.  Anyway, I hope that I'll be able to do as well when I go to South Africa in August.

I agree about the little branch, but I was not going to go out of the car to remove it!!

I really like the feel of this image. I get the impression that we are peeping in on the big cat during a solitary nap.
