A massive adult male Lion at Rest!<br />
<br />
Their job is to sit, rest, protect the pride, procreate, and sleep!<br />
<br />
The storied life of a big cat.  <br />
<br />
We travel to Tanzania to view and photography wild animals and birds, along with beautiful landscapes.  We search for the best angle, light, pose, and hopefully some action.  This latest tour gave us everything. <br />
<br />
Here, this huge male was resting, and waiting for the pride to make the next kill, usually happening in the dark hours of the night.  In our camp, at 3-4 am, we can hear the roars, and the fights with elephants and hyenas as they all fight for survival.<br />
<br />
The morning light at sunrise is filled with excitement, as we trek out to the bush to see what happened.  Early am us full of activity.  This shot however was taken during the late afternoon, sun going down, and a rest time for the lions as they prepare for the evening hunt.<br />
<br />
The look of content is what made this scene interesting for me.<br />

Thanks so much for browsing my website.

Bringing my daughter Maria to this location was a special deal.    Just over 13 years ago Maria was 2.5 months old, I took her and her mom to the Mississippi to see the bald eagles.  Her first bird!<br />
<br />
Maria is so much like me, she loves long drives, with my music!  She loves nature, and Photography.  We get along awesomely, and now I can't wait to go back here in a couple days.<br />
<br />
In this image, you will see 4  subjects, 3 birds, and their meal, as  the fish does not look happy!  <br />
<br />
Among the best opportunities I have had in my life!<br />
