Group of young lions on their outing; exploring, learning and relaxing in nature’s playground. Fantastic image taken of these three youngsters, bringing across their personalities which is almost human like. Unique wildlife print for your dedicated wall space.
Being able to spend several days with a specific group of animals is an extreme privilege, which is often difficult to pursue.
Due to the patterned routine of this lion pride we were lucky to meet up with them in their favorite spot on a daily basis. The location was also highly inspiring from a photographers view.
The pattern of this pride consisted of hunting in the night, eating in the early morning hours and then moving to the group of trees for playing and resting in the shade during the day.
Although knowing their routine and starting to foresee some behavioral elements, it still required a lot of patience out of me to eventually photograph the for my eyes perfect scene.
We are early today, the pride has just arrived from their morning kill and while the older lions are already looking for a comfortable spot under the trees the youngsters are still full of energy.
The cubs are about 6 month old. They are a busy bundle. Climbing up the trees, ducking under them, teasing and chasing each other.
As much as it is a pleasure just to watch I have to be on the alert all the time. I lie in the legroom of the car squeezed between seats and camera bags and have both cameras on stand by resting on the beanbags in front of me.
The Grey Crowned Crane is calling in the high trees and the helmed guinea fowls chatter around us. It is such a harmonic atmosphere.
As one of the cubs starts chasing the guinea fowls to practice its hunting skills, I see my opportunity to witness this fascinating scene with my camera.
What a privilege!
