I Have Seen Tomorrow

On an afternoon safari in the Maasai Mara, I spotted a lioness on the horizon. Requesting that the jeep stop to allow me to frame the shot provided a timeframe for the lioness to amble towards the vehicle. The vehicle created a rare shadow in the harsh afternoon sun, one which the lioness immediately took advantage of. Lying right by the side of the vehicle, panting, she'd cast a cursory but soulful glance towards the vehicle's occupants. Framed in the eyes of this lioness, is a reflection of the safari vehicle I occupied.
