We were in the Gir National Park in India in Nov 2012. After having done five safaris we were yet to see a lion. This park is the only place where Asiatic lions are found. Towards the end of our 6th safari we came upon a pride of six lionesses with their cubs. It was interesting to watch their behavior and how they interacted with each other. Then this lioness came forward and sat in front of us as if trying to understand us. The golden evening light was perfect to photograph her.
