Description: A lioness provides a loving grip on her young cub as she carries him to a safe location in July 2021.

Story from behind the lens: We had met up with this lioness along with her sister one afternoon and knew that she must have cubs stashed away, so we spent the next morning searching for her. We found them together enjoying the morning sunshine and were thrilled to see her carrying one off her two cubs.
