Description: Iseketa pride male greets his cub
Story from behind the lens: Just before sunrise, we'd passed the Iseketa pride males sleeping soundly and found the lionesses and cubs nearby. When the cubs started moving back toward the males, we turned back, arriving just in time to see the cubs excitedly greet their father. This male seemingly kisses his little girl hello in the golden morning light. It was an incredibly heartwarming moment to witness.
