Description: A lioness wakes up and stretches before walking along a fallen tree trunk straight towards me, and yawning as she jumps off the end

Story from behind the lens: I spent an afternoon watching this lioness sleeping on a log in the knowledge that eventually she would wake up and walk off the end towards me. I was not expecting her though to stop, yawn and provide me with the perfect photo opportunity. It feels reminiscent of a scene from the lion king as the pride call off pride rock
