Description: Capturing animals in motion is often the best way to depict their character. This youngster shows intensity, power, agility, and focus in this one stride.

Story from behind the lens: We spent hours watching a group of young lions romping around and play stalking one another after feasting on an early morning kill from the adults. It was fun to see the different personalities come to light through their play and practice.
