This lioness is joining the rest of the group at a kill but the youngster just wants to play. But they are hungry and within a few they reach the rest of the pride, although from where they came it was impossible to have visual contact.

Hi Tom,beautiful and tender moment from the Masai Mara.What a timing and what a top quality pic,fanatstic sharpness,focus and natural colors!Thanks for share,have a nice weekend,Luciano.

Hello Tom,

Lovely shot of mother & (cub)child. I like the happiness/energy in their tails & the 'jaw prep' of the youngster in anticipation of it's nearby feast. Nice sharpness, for an on-the-trot image.

The lioness appears to already have a tint of blood on her facial area - perhaps she was involved in the initial takedown!?



Excellent image the sharpness couldn't be any better in the well exposed image. I love the fact that one can easily see the spots within the pelage of the cub. Very nice Tom.

Have a great WE
