Lion cubs on a termite mound

By maggietear
Our guide spotted these two cubs on a termite mound, hidden there by their mother while she went to hunt. They seemed quite vulnerable just waiting for her return.
Thanks to everyone for your interesting comments on my photos from Morroco.

My thoughts would be to just crop around the main cub...
Boost the colours atad in leavels...
I just hope I get some like this and as nice as this in Sept this year...

Natural light and shade. Lovely captureSmile Smile Smile
I suppose the mother thought the termites would keep the cubs safe, for me I havn't stopped scratching since I saw the caption.
You caught them in relaxed mode.
