Description

In the months prior to this frame, this lioness and her cubs had stubbornly refused to drink in the daylight hours. I had patiently waited until dusk for them on numerous occasions and twice, upon walking back to camp, I met all eight on foot! I never carried a rifle as my arms were always full of camera gear, and both meetings were rather surreal. The cubs were always tentatively inquisitive, running forward with their ears pricked while mom kept a beady eye on my every movement! I like to think that through such experiences, I gain a greater understanding of my own niche in the ecosystem but some say my years of bush living have made me blasé.
