Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Andrew Scriven

The grasslands of the Serengeti attract the attention of grazing animals, which in turn attract the predatory felines. This fearsome lion shows a softer, more intimate side while delicately preening himself in the closing light.

Location: Eastern Serengeti, Tanzania 2°28'54" S 35°15'34" E
