Description: Male lion cub taking a brief moment for himself in the rains

Story from behind the lens: As we set out for our evening game drive in Masai Mara National Park in Kenya, the skies became dramatic and stormy. We spotted a pride of four young male cubs resting in the bush and patiently waited for some action. As it began to rain, the cubs started running around and playing with each other. This photograph was taken in the middle of the action when one of the cubs took a moment for himself.
