[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This group of lions was spotted in Samburu, Kenya, during my trip in September 2004. These lions were lying in the shades and resting. The group consisted of 3 adult lions and 7 cubs. Everything looked very quiet and peacefull.
As you can see these lions are not in a top condition. This is because of the dry environment in Samburu. The result is that there is only little game to hunt for. This is a big difference compared to the other reservates like Masai Mara. Samburu is also known of its large groups of elephants.

Picture taken with zoom set at 300mm.

Very nice shot.. They lions seem to be a bit sad. Nice capture of a moment of social life. The picture needs a bit of sharpening. Well done anyway!
