Description: A young cub from the Rongai stretches after waking from a late afternoon nap.
Story from behind the lens: After a wild day exploring the Mara, we came across a portion of the Rongai pride napping near the roadway. Several cubs were nestled up with two males. As the sun began getting lower in the sky, the pride started waking. Just before the females returned to a warm and playful welcome from the cubs, this little guy woke up, gave a big yawn, and started practicing some yoga.
