Up Close and Personal with a Hungry Kenyan Lion

New Zealand-born wildlife photographer Robyn Preston’s image of a lion swiping at her camera, in Maasai Mara, Kenya features in the Daily Record’s weekly picture editor gallery.

“The roaring lion shows off his razor-sharp teeth as he defends a hippo carcass in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve.

“The predator is part of a formidable coalition of four males known as Notch’s Boys.

“The unique shots were captured by Preston during an early morning game drive.”

Preston has travelled through 11 African countries. She has taken part in two wildlife conservation volunteer programs: in the Makalali Private Reserve in South Africa, in 2010 and in the Naboisho Conservancy of the Maasai Mara, Kenya, in 2013.
