Description: Four lionesses keep in step journeying toward the Mara River.

Story from behind the lens: Sunrise early in the Mara on Paradise Plain, living up to its name in the morning glow. The lionesses march forward keeping in step, unperturbed. You hold your breath - and your nerve - as you wait for a pleasing formation while they pass by your jeep. A lone tree in the background bears witness to the scene as it has done for years before and will continue to do for years to come.
