Description: As the day comes to a close, this lion's hunt only begins.

Story from behind the lens: After another long and exciting day at the Mara, we refused to let the sun set without seeing a lion wake up from its slumber under the hot sun. Yes, we searched and patiently waited until the sun was getting ready to disappear from the horizon. Suddenly, coming from the shadows and in between tall blades of grass was this beautiful lion running against the wind and into the wind as if his prey is waiting to be had.
