Good morning....

Thank you for all your votes and great comments about my lion cub . A special thanks to Phillip ( PhilT2 ) his UA, much appreciated.

Today is a follow on from yesterday's image. A lot of you were wondering where her Mom was...well here is Mom looking and calling her cub to hurry up. The cub really is tiny compared to the others as you will see in the versions and she likes to rest and look around. Hope you like the sequence of events....
Lead image....this fits in after yesterdays image, the \lioness looked a bit exasperated with her last born
V2 The first image where they had stopped and were begging her to get up
V3 This is her lying down looking at them saying I am tired whats the hurry...they turned round and started walking. Yesterdays image follows this as she was a bit lost in the long grass.
V4 They are all together again walking down the track
V5 She stops again to look at us following them
V6 She is lagging behind againGrinGrinGrin

Everything absolutely spot on in V1 (all I can see at the moment).
Lovely colour, great muscles - everything.

I see that this set was taken with Nikon 70-300, but I think that the pictures from Tamron are as good as Nikon's ones ....
