These princely lions look like they’re posing for a family portrait, perhaps taking their cue from one too many tourist groups making the rounds of their home in Tanzania’s Serengeti. The six stately creatures with luscious locks are all three-year-old brothers. 

Photographer Daniel Dolpire was lucky enough to bag this shot while the kings of the jungle relaxed for six amazing minutes. “I’ve been taking wildlife photos for over 20 years,” he says. “But this has got to be my special moment.”
