Description: Lioness carrying her cub

Story from behind the lens: As the lioness finished with her kill, decided to walk back, what we thought was her resting place, but only to realize that she was walking to get her cub to the kill that she had made. The cub must have been about 1.5months to 2 months old as it could barely walk and hence the mom decided to pick it up and take it to where the kill was made. It was raining fairly heavily and with light being a challenge, getting pictures was tricky but thanks to our driver and his understanding we managed to place our vehicle in the right place to get some good pictures of this tender moment between the mother lion and her cub.
