Description: Alert male Lion portrait, pre-sunrise.

Story from behind the lens: Majesty /ˈmædʒəsti/ - the quality of being big, beautiful, or impressive in a calm and serious way. (Macmillan Dictionary). It's easy to see why the Lion has been called the 'King of the Beasts', among many similar descriptions. This male is an example of the grandeur and majesty that humans have admired over the ages, and I was fortunate enough to have his undivided attention early one morning. With the pre-dawn blush lightening the sky, it was a moment the will live with me forever... In the presence of greatness.
