Description: Young male lion looks after a playful cub

Story from behind the lens: We set upon a pride of lions sleeping as the sun was setting. The pride was between us and the setting sun. As we moved, we got into position where we were between the sun and the pride, but with the sun at an angle. The lions were waking up, getting ready for the night. At 560mm, I was able to catch this young male watch over this playful cub as the sun set over the horizon.
