Minature of mom

Artist's Description

Canon 60D, Canon 100-400L, 400mm, 1/1600, f5.6, ISO 800

This tiny lion cub (Panthera leo) is hardly a few weeks old and a very tiny minature of his large and powerful mother. In a few short years however, this tiny little male will totally outstrip his mother in size and power.

Camouflaged by his speckled and light coloured coat, his mother will leave him and his young siblings alone for hours at a time while she goes hunting. If they’ve been fortunate, the camouflage will have worked in her absence and she will return to the wild excitement and affection of her young cubs.

South Luangwa National Park, Zamba
