Description: A lioness carries one of her two young cubs from here to there

Story from behind the lens: We had seen this lioness a few days earlier and could tell that she was a new mother, but she was hunting and the cubs were hidden away somewhere. We searched a few times to find her with her cubs and on our last day we were successful. It was a lovely morning and dad was around soaking up the sun while mom and her sister took the cubs on a walk about. What made this all the more exciting was that there were very few trucks nearby and so she had the ability to move without interruption.
