Male Lion, Lake Nakuru, Kenya

 (Patrick Kriner)

While we were capturing images of the Baboons around Lake Nakuru, we came across a Male Lion sleeping up in a tree.  He seemed oblivious to the two Land Rovers below him with 6 Photographers sticking out of the top.  We watched as he struggled to get down from the tree.  It was apparent that his sharp nails gave him the ability to climb the tree, but were not so useful in helping him to get down.  It took him more than 45 minutes to figure out that the best way was to just fall out of the tree and try to land on his feet.  Once he accomplished this, he ran off into the forest having given us a great moment in our travels through Kenya.  Remember to Like my Images on Facebook, +1 on Google +, and “Pin It” on Pinterest.  Enjoy!
