The Male Gaze

Your Shot photographer Tim Bryan made eye contact with this male lion in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. "I will never forget his piercing gaze," he says. With more than 2,500 lions living in its borders, the park is one of the largest lion refuges in the world. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
