The Lion Sleeps

An Italian lion trainer rests with one of the lions she works with. Your Shot photographer Nader Saadallah photographed her while she worked, and says, "She treats the lions like her children. She sleeps and plays with them everyday." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
