Can i come along with you? by 

The lionesses (Panthera leo) Tsalala pride were relaxing under a tree in the early morning when the 4 members of the Majingilane male coalition showed up.This caused a lot of anxiety among the lionessesof the Tsalala pride consisting of 3 lionesses ,2 sub adult females and this male cub.The majingilanes all mated with the tailess lioness ,the mother of the cub,so he was safe ,but not all 4 mated with the mother of the 18 month old sub adults so if the males that did not mate with her got near the sub adults they might kill them.In this shot we can see the mother of the cub and the 2 sub adults slowly approaching where the males are lying.It took about 1 hour to cover the 200 meters to get near the males.Low light and light drizzle.

    Wow! Amazing photography and story about the life of these lionesses. Such a hard life out there in the wild. Looks like they are coming for you in this one. :))

  • Thanks,Ginny,it really is tough in the wild,we were well positioned so the lionesses had to come toward us to get to the 4 big lions and had to pass in front of us,just a pity there was no sunlight for the photos.It was amazing but the little cub made the first contact and i have a great shot of that, that i will later put up :)
