Description: Early morning encounter with ungroomed lion

Story from behind the lens: We left the camp early morning and started to photograph some silhouettes. It was our last day on Mara and we are excited to see what the day will bring us. Suddenly one of the Sala’s boys got up, ungroomed and stood in front of us. Can’t forgot his eyes almost saying: hey don’t go yet, you have so much to look forward to.
