This is Earless, a member of the extended Notch family, the famous Lion pride of Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya.
Earless seems to have had a very fruitful night as he is covered with flies all over his face, after having feasted all night he is seen walking, just after sunrise, looking for a suitable place to sleep the day off.
