The Regal King II

The Regal King II

The are the “Kings of the Jungle” despite there being no jungle in the plains of the Maasi Mara. But, there is no denying these creatures are truly majestic and regal.

While they sleep much of the day, we had the opportunity to see the lions in some very active states: hunting, mating, and just lounging around. Here, this male lion was just watching his surroundings. We were able to approach pretty close in our vehicle without scaring the lion away—really, I doubt the lions get too scared by the vehicles.

Personally, I like the black and white version of this image more—it creates more sense of majesty. But, the hues that are seen in this color version are also very appealing.
