Photo of the Day: Feasting with the King of the Beasts

Considering today is World Lion Day, we thought we’d pay tribute to the big cats with one of our favorite shots from our day on safari in the Serengeti. We came across this lion – along with about seven others – relaxing together on a rocky outcropping above the plain, clearly enjoying the fruits of the day’s hunt. Seeing lions in the African wild is a thrilling experience to begin with. Watching them annihilate a full-sized wildebeest right before your eyes? Sheesh.
