Hundreds of flies take advantage of a resting lion as they ingest blood on his face from his latest kill. 

Photographer Payam Farahani, 23, captured the image in the Masai Mara, Kenya. 

Payam said, "Lions rest after hunting to regain their strength. This didn't seem too bothered by the flies, but once in a while he would shake his head to make them move."
