Just Lion Around by ShadowCheetah Just Lion Around by ShadowCheetah
It gets hot during midday, so lions, like many animals, prefer the shade. They're social creatures, however, so they like being close to each other, despite all their body heat making it much warmer. As a result, you occasionally see these piles of lions in the rough shape of the shade from trees. It's pretty funny.

Taken during a recent South Africa.

If you're interested, I dumped a ton of photos from the trip here:

So freakin' awesome. I've always wanted to go on an African safari in order to do some animal studies. You are one lucky guy! Great shot by the by.

Thanks! In an actual safari, though, it's actually pretty hard to get a good close look at most of the animals unless you're really lucky. Actually, sometimes you're lucky just to get a glimpse of a lot of them! The zoo's probably easier for art studies. ^^
