In Uganda National Park lions rest on the trees under the shadow of daylight

It turns out that such giant cats like lions also love to take rest, lounging on the branches of trees. Wildlife photographer Vince Burton, who went to Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, was able to shoot this amazing sight with his camera.

The lions climbed the trees to indulge in a day’s rest. One of the predators deftly occupied two branches at once.

You rarely see such a sight. Lions are known to be large, heavy cats that prefer to rest in the shade of bushes and under spreading trees.

“Thus, they escape not only from the rays of the hot midday sun but also cool down thanks to even the lightest breeze. In addition, their gaze opens up a wonderful view, which certainly cannot be obtained while lying on the ground,” says Vince Barton.

“My passion for photography comes from childhood. I remember very well when they gave me my first camera. It was then that I became interested in wildlife photography. Over time, my childhood hobby grew into something more. You can say that this is my passion,” tells the man.
