Description: An elegant halo of sparkling water drops surround this beautiful lioness in the Mara Triangle.

Story from behind the lens: Morning rain showers in the Mara Triangle are often followed by sunshine. And if you’re lucky enough to be with a pride of lions you will often be blessed with the (...wait for it…) “head shake” that produces an elegant halo of sparkling light surrounding your chosen lion.
