Description: Close up of a male lion

Story from behind the lens: Nothing like filling the frame with a close up of a lion's eyes. This big guy was taking a break from eating on a buffalo kill and layed down pretty close to our vehicle. When he did he happened to look right at my camera. Nothing like seeing your reflection in lion's eyes!
