The Great Lion

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Ande Truman

This magnificent lion was sleeping in a field under an overcast sky. Shortly after this shot, I lost my footing and held on to the fence so I wouldn't fall. The lion quickly shot up after being awoken, ready to pounce on whoever disturbed his sleep. Thankfully, he was too tired to be angry.

Location: Near Port Elizabeth, South Africa
