Description: Lion cub of the Topi pride putting its litte paw on his siblings back. Another cub wants to join them.

Story from behind the lens: We found some of the lionesses and their cubs of the Topi pride with a killed eland. They were resting/ hiding in the bushes. Sometimes the cubs came out to investigate. It was about 60-70m's from the road, which was packed with vehicles. So moving for the right frame was rather difficult. Also because some vehicles went offroad (after "talking" to the rangers) to get some better pictures and they ruined a lot of shots of the other photographers present.
