Description: A male lion watching the rising hot air balloons in the Maasai Mara

Story from behind the lens: It was early morning and the hot air balloons where just rising. As I reached the near the lion pride, I saw the big male lion. I thought it will be a fascinating frame If I could get the lion and the balloons in one frame. I requested my guide to position the vehicle accordingly. To my surprise I saw the lion looking at the balloons with great interest. I captured the picture accordingly to show case a quintessential Maasai mara.
