As the African sunsets and the earth begins to cool down, the birds return to their nests and the lions decide to hit the hot tar to take a quick nap. According to BBC News who had reported that the wildlife was soon going to notice that the humans had disappeared, the lions in South Africa’s Kruger National Park swiftly took advantage of this unexpected albeit pleasant anomaly. This picture was shot by Richard Sowry, a ranger at the park who says that based on their nature and normal behaviour, a sight like this would usually only be seen on the roads at night.
