[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We came upon a pride of lions lazing in the middle of the road and spent almost an hour with them taking their photos with only one other vehicle arriving during that time. The pride of 15 contained a number of young lions of various ages of which these 3 were the smallest (and cutest).

I just like your title "Floppy and friends". Did the floppy ears of the lion in the front of this pack trigger that thought? This is a delightful image with lots of pleasurable details to appreciate and applaud. What I noticed at first glance was the rather big hairy ears of these youngsters, and the spots on some places of the fur. I also noticed that the youngster in the front (once again) has a mature look in its face although the body is that of a young lion. Just love the visibility of the cushions on the paws one can see on the one on the left hand side, and the curled up ear of the one at the back. Each one has its own unique characteristics and it was a pleasure to look and explore each one’s body language individually. I had to add it to my favourites.
Best regards.
