Masai Mara Lions


One of my favorite photographers and fellow bloggers, Scott randall, posted an amazing photo of a lion;

I thought I should dig up some of my photos from my trip to Kenya. I spent 4 days at the Fig Tree Camp and went on many safaris into the wonderful Masai Mara. Animals were abundant, more than I could ever have imagined. It was the experience of a lifetime. The photos were taken on a point and shoot.. I hope the quality is ok.

Our open top jeep drove very close to her as she tried to hide in the grass, I watched her carefully, trusting she would not pounce.

another couple of kittens played in the warm sun. They would make a great pet but feeding them would be an issue.

Waiting for us to pass by so she could get back to her nap.

The size of her teeth changed my mind about the "cute kitten" thing.
