Description: Male lion in profile along the Mara River

Story from behind the lens: Ginger, also known as Ololopolosie, is a distinctive male lion of the Mara Triangle. Here he is backlit beautifully along the banks of the Mara River. His red mane, the golden grasses and the late afternoon sun blended together for a great portrait of the prominent Mara male.
