It’s natural feline instincts having been aroused by the scurrying of some small creature, this young lion cubs (panthera leo) irrepressible need to investigate and well….be a cat, just can’t be restrained any longer as he thows himself wholeheartedly into the game of cat and mouse.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at
