Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Ed Hetherington

This very full lion cub was trying hard to stay awake and each time her eyes closed she would catch herself. Eventually she couldn't fight it any longer and she rolled down the sand where she continued to sleep in this position.

Location: Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
