Good morning...
Once again thank you for all your votes and comments and a huge thank you to Kathryn and Herman for their UA's.

Some more of the lionesses and their cubs today. Over the last 3 years the mother produced 3 cubs...2 lionesses and a lion. The male you know of as Scarface who featured on my last trip. The mother has now produced two more cubs who are 8 months old. The one daughter has 2 cubs which are 6 months old. The other daughter is pregnant and due to birth this week coming. That will make a huge pride of at least 9 lions. This cub was my favourite. I will upload a few others of him as well as one of the family watching us.

Have a great day

Excellent set, I love the pose, light and composition of V3. V1 however is the outstanding image, you have used DOF with great skill here to draw attention to the face of the main subject but see just enough of the watching lion in the background. The UA is for V1. I have been looking at it for a while and was wondering about a composition with some cropped off the left hand side but on reflection, I think you have got it just right.

A fine set Colleen.
And I was never much good with arithmetic at school,
so I will need to get my abacus out to work out whose
cubs are the daughter of whose mother and how many
has Scarface fathered or indeed if he is the father at all !!

Like children they enjoy playing. However, their play has far more serious consequences. It is in their genes for survival...play-fighting and wrestling, stalking each other, it all has a meaning...not like human children sticking lego blocks in their mouths or staring in wonder at a screen...

A lovely set of images, Colleen.

You were so lucky to see the cubs at this early age, usually they are tucked away somewhere that you are not able to get more than a brief glimpse. Lovely photos.
