So what shall we do today boys...hunting again? Africa's fearsome predators put their paws up as they contemplate next meal
Even the most fearsome predators need a little time to relax. These six lions decided to put their paws up as they contemplated the day ahead.
But it seems they came to the conclusion that there was no urgent business to attend to – as within minutes of this early morning shot, three of them had fallen asleep.
Photographer Daniel Dolpire captured the line-up on the edge of the Serengeti, in Tanzania.

The 59-year-old said: 'I have been taking wildlife photos for over 20 years, but this has got to be my special moment.
'I needed to work fast as you just do not know when they will move or just flop down and go to sleep. This was just a unique, special moment. No one has ever seen or recorded such a special moment or possibly ever will.'
