Description: A lion hiding among the foliage, showing a reluctance to be noticed.

Story from behind the lens: While we approached, the lion was engrossed in devouring its recently captured prey. I chose to take a photo that showcased a group of safari vehicles positioned next to the lion. The intention was to convey the notion that despite the lion's status as the jungle's ruler and the emblem of safaris, humans pose a markedly greater danger. This scenario underscores the irony that even the lion finds it necessary to seek refuge beneath the bushes
