One afternoon while exploring the Southern Serengeti plains, we found a large pride of lions relaxing in the grass near some tall marsh grasses. This area was located near a small lake (watering hole) so it was a perfected place for the lions to hide in the tall grasses and catch some rest before the evenings hunt. As we photographed several lions and cubs in the short grass and in some dirt areas, lion after lion began emerging from the tall marsh reeds. It was amazing how they disappeared from sight as soon as the stepped a small step backwards into the grasses. It was interesting to observe such simple, yet effective camouflage in action. We had to move on from this pride, so we were not able to watch a hunt. Maybe next trip?
