Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sunset Siesta 1” by Robert Henderson. Location: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

“This group of young lions napping on the warm rocks were just waiting for the sun to go down,” explains Henderson. “As the light dimmed, they began to wake up and stretch and have a look around. A few minutes later and they were away from the rocks on the hunt.”
