Evening with a pride of Lions in Masai Mara – Final Part

As we were observed the pride of Lions, time flew and the sun set fast. We had to leave the Lions to themselves and start our return journey to the resort. When we turned the vehicle and started moving, we noticed that the rest of the Pride were sleeping under an Acacia tree on the other side of the safari track. The sleeping Lions against the backdrop of the setting sun made a beautiful image and we took a few partial silhouette compositions and moved on.

The Silhouettes of the wildlife that we saw along the way, back to the resort, made for some interesting compositions. The Elephant herd, the Black Rhinoceros that we saw the previous day and the Giraffe in the distant horizon rounded off an eventful day at Masai Mara. The highlight of the day was ofcourse the migration of the Wildebeest.

  4. Fantastic skies! Impressive Rhinoceros…

  5. Wonderful. It takes me a few decades back when I was living in South Africa! Thank you for sharing Thomas.

  6. Awesome photography as always, Thomas!

  7. I would like to drop few words of appreciation, –

    1) The first one is a great landscape photograph. You may like to crop the vehicle at the right corner;-).

    2) The 2nd one is also an excellent click. At the first look the sleeping lions seems to be dead bodies.:-) beautiful shot.

    3) The 4th, two horned rhino … signature of Africa… as against one horned rhino .. signature of Kaziranga, Assam(India) .. liked it.

    4) The 5th, could not identify which one was male and which one was female. African female elephants also have protruding teeth whereas, in Indian breed, only males have it.

    5) The 6th, Silhouette of a Giraffe. Excellent.

    Overall, an outstanding series of wildlife photographs. :-)
