Animal photo of the year: Lions at sunset

Why Evolution Is True

This picture, taken by Facebook friend Craig Packer on the Serengeti Plains, and reproduced with his permission, is one of the most stunning animal photos I’ve ever seen. Be sure to click on it twice to enlarge it. The lions are frozen like golden statues in the setting sun.

Packer, who works out of the University of Minnesota, has done classic studies of lions for years (many with his collaborator Anne Pusey), and wrote a wonderful book on his field work, Into Africa.
