After a night of heavy rain, this majestic male lion views us with some disdain!
Lion Panthera leo
The lion is one of the five big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies found in Africa. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia.
This image was captured in the Masai Mara conservancy, south west Kenya, East Africa.
