An Old Male Lion

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Richard Simonsen

An old male lion was returning home at sunset. It had a distinct limp while it walked along and I followed hoping he would get out of the shade and into the warm evening sun. The low light resulted in an exposure of 1/50 sec but the sharpness of the lion’s eye and face made the chase worthwhile.

Location: Masai Mara, Mara River, Kenya
