Shake It Off


During a terrific sighting of the Cheli Pride during an afternoon game drive in the Mara North Conservancy of Kenya, an almighty rain storm descended upon us.

This female lion from the pride had been sitting in the open, roaring for the rest of her pride to join her.  This made conditions great for photography!

Before the other lions emerged from the distance, it had rained, and here, I managed to capture the lioness shaking the excess water from her face.
