Description: A lone warthog stands on a ridge as the sun rises

Story from behind the lens: We were scanning an area looking for some roaring lions, and not having any luck. However, we kept getting distracted by the animals that were walking carefully along a ridge, backlit by the sun rising on a hazy day. This warthog provided us with a nice profile view, with us appreciating its beauty while it scanned for the lions.
