I have some shots of very lordly and regal lions. But sometimes the fun shots are better. This huge male was taking his leasure when our two safari trucks swooped down on the pride in the west Seregeti NP, Tanzania, Africa. The females herded the kids out of harms way, but this guy just yawned. After a bit of grooming his gave a monsterous shake. Since I was shooting burst I ended up with all this motion blur around one perfectly focused eye.
