New cubs!

20140301 - CS3_5151

It was the first time I saw the new Lion cubs of the oldest Thanda South Pride female. The mum of the two youngsters is quite shy and likes thick bush. Bheki and I were on our way to take some pictures on the Thanda Mduna Royal Reserve. As we approached the fence line to this new part of Thanda we spotted the female with her two new cubs and the their two older brothers.

I got a few shots of some of the family members before they disappeared into a drainage line. This is my favorite images from this fast photo shoot 🙂

  1. This one doesn’t look happy…amazing how different they can look. Subtle differences but I imagine seeing them often you can easily identify them.

  2. Looks as he would be saying “Hey, who are you and were do you think your going” Awesome capture.One can read alot of things into with this shot.
