A lioness watches closely over one of her four new cubs at the Ft. Worth Zoo. She had been bathing the baby and paused to look up at the throng of people watching them. The babies are simply adorable!

Wow, I really like the lioness' crouching pose, being protective over the cute little lion cub. Sharp details and great POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Hi Laurie,
Very nice capture! I love the way the mom has her chin planted on the top of her cub's head. Great timing, and nice of the mother lion to hold her pose!

I did a workshop cropping a little more. See what you think.

Thanks for sharing!
