"Lion In a Tree"

This was a first for me--a lioness (Panthera leo) descending an acacia tree. It's unusual in most areas to see a lion in a tree, and in this case there were *three* of them up there. They aren't quite as graceful as a leopard is when coming down, but still very fascinating to see and photograph. Taken in the Central Serengeti, Tanzania, Africa.
