Hot Air Balloons, Tanzania

Photograph by James Wheeler

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Culture Photos

While riding in the tracking car, following commercial hot-air balloons filled with paid riders in the Serengeti (Tanzania), we found that we didn't appear to be the only ones keeping an eye on the sky. This female lion traveled slowly in front of us for quite some distance, but finally turned and glared back at us, then within a few seconds, totaly disappeared into the nearby brush.
