Description: Lions about to mate

Story from behind the lens: It was an exciting morning! Five male lions and one lioness. Four young males slowly approached the couple from different angles and we thought a challenge was in the offing but they stayed submissive. The lioness became impatient and picked this spot to wait for the king! We were in the Mara Triangle!
