Description: Two young cubs from the Enkoyanai pride show their close bond whilst playing.

Story from behind the lens: We came across the Enkoyanai pride on a wildebeest kill early one morning. There was one particular young cub who was bolder than the others, not only stalking his mother in play but also playing exhuberantly with one of the older cubs. This images captures a moment when the younger cub placed its paws on the older cub in a more tender moment.
