Description: One of the Salas Boys awakens from napping with the Topi Pride during one of our first lion encounters after arriving on Masai Mara National Reserve.

Story from behind the lens: The Topi Pride was quite near our camp and provided us with a lot of photo opportunities over our four days in the reserve. They are numerous, healthy, well fed and well led and pretty much went about their business unintimidated and unannoyed as long as long as tourists kept a respectful distance.
