Description: Male lion gazing into the distance

Story from behind the lens: It was out first day in the Mara. We were observing a pride of lions that were watching some wildebeest across a small ravine. This male was sitting with some females around him gazing into the distance. Eventually they took down a wildebeest and we saw our first successful hunt.
