Panthera leo nubica
3 cubs relaxing
I spotted these adorable cubs while on safari in Masai Mara national park.
Thanks Kaushang, patty, Luis and willie.
very nice series Dan
Just so good Dan
Lovely Dan! Very cute lion cubs indeed =)
Thanks Mary, very true. Thanks Dangermouse, me too!
Not really, Dan, it was just one of those things (the interview) I kinda stumbled over! Well, good luck with the jaguar. I hope you manage to snap a shot of him in the future.
Adorable spotting, each cub is showing their personality in each shot. :)
Thanks Dangermouse. You found my newspaper interview, eh? You must have been doing some searching. That was from last sept. I don't go on mytropicalvisions FB page too much. I started it and then kind of didn't do much else with it. I just checked it again, thanks for the post there too. Unfortunately the jaguar eluded me on my recent trip to S. America. I had some high hopes and did 2 trips into the Pantanal and a long Amazon trip but it wasn't the best season for spotting them. I saw very fresh tracks, less than 12 hours old but that was it. Another park I had really high hopes for was closed to vehicular traffic, so I couldn't really explore the park properly. It's still a dream of mine to see a jaguar and giant anteater and I will be going back to S. America to try again sometime in the future.
I love all the photos, a great series of shots, but that first one, with one yawning, is just priceless!Btw, Dan, I was looking on your website and FB page and found an article from a newspaper with an interview with you. It was interesting, and it mentioned a jaguar. You said you'd seen prints, did you ever manage to get a photo of one?
Thanks everyone. I think you're right Emma, the one yawing looks like a male.
looks like two females and a male. Golden maned male. Though Dark maned males have it a little easier in the wild...
Great photo series!
Talk about capturing the moment! The yawn in the first pic is priceless...
