Roar is the perennial lion picture. Whether he is roaring or yawning, looking into the massive mouth of a male lion is awesome. The power of those jaws and teeth to take down and kill his prey quickly and effectively like no other creature can.
I took this photo in the Maasai Mara where the most beautiful lions roam. Yet their lives are in danger every day. As powerful as they are, they are subject to our decisions. Once the king of the jungle, they now are in serious jeopardy.
