Description: Late in the evening the three Sala's boys - Osopuk, Orkito and Olepolos get together. One of the three had limped in injured perhaps to be consoled by his brothers.

Story from behind the lens: We couldn't believe our luck the very first evening in the Mara! First we were treated to the Rekero cubs playing and then all three Salas boys sat together after the sun had set. I believe it was Olepolos who had been injured and it was nice to watch his brothers show affection toward him after he limped in to join them. As it was so late, the only way to capture this scene was to use a slow shutter speed, at my widest aperature and an extremely high ISO. It did take some work in post processing to deal with the inevitable noise, but I think the story comes through well and I was more than willing to put in the work to capture these three stunning males in one image!
