Hidden Surprise

There was a frenzy amongst the 4WD vans trying to get as close to the lion as possible as tourists elbowed their way to get that perfect shot. This was taken during one of the game drives at the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and rather happened by accident. I had the lion fitting the entire frame ready to get that perfect picture when the van began to move. I was upset, but sometimes the best photos are accidental ones as it challenges your perspective of what you believe should look right. Sometimes that one wrong move is what makes it perfect.

Location: Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
