Description: This impressive lion was happily sleeping on the road yawning intermittently making it His Majesty's private road!

Story from behind the lens: We waited more than 30 minutes for the lion to get up and walk; and to our amusement stayed on the road for a long time before off-roading. Luckily we were the only vehicle so we took our time waiting patiently at this very enjoyable sighting. The lion was very relaxed. I went as low as possible inside the vehicle to take this shot.
