This picture is one of National Geographic's photos of the day. I just love this shot--the uniqueness of the hot air balloons in an unexpected place, the lion observing in wonder from far away, the whole thing is just beautiful. I have to wonder what that lion is thinking!
Here is the original caption for the photo:
While riding in the tracking car, following commercial hot-air balloons filled with paid riders in the Serengeti (Tanzania), we found that we didn't appear to be the only ones keeping an eye on the sky. This female lion traveled slowly in front of us for quite some distance, but finally turned and glared back at us, then within a few seconds, totally disappeared into the nearby brush.
