Three Lions

"The first lion to emerge from the tall grass as we idled was the one to climb the tree, with the other two males hoping to piggy back on his creativity," remembers Your Shot photographer Jay Rush. "The tree-climbing is a rarity in males, a fact attested to by residents of the Rift Valley in Kenya." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
