Description: Lion cub leading the way for pride members

Story from behind the lens: This little cub just started walking down the trail toward our vehicle like he was in charge. His older relations seem a bit uncertain of his actions and hung back for a bit. Then they followed along too. Side light helped out as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. I think this little guy has his sights set on leading a coalition someday.
