Description: Just before 7am, the lighting was warm, and just as the weather was warming up as well these adolescent cubs decided to run around and play around our car.

Story from behind the lens: I have always been a fan of taking photos just after sunrise and just before sunset. Soon after the sun rose, I was eagerly looking for a backlit photo opportunity. We watched this pride of lions resting after their eventful night (they had killed a wildebeest a few hours earlier). These adolescent lions, full of energy were chasing each other when they got into this mini wrestling match when I caught them in the act.
