Oh my, Trevor, what a magnificent shot. The expression on the face of the little one is priceless. Awesome shot.

Thank you Levina, that is very much appreciated. She was learning about chasing and hunting, but got a bit over-excited and bit her mum a trifle too hard and too often, so she got told. I watched them, entranced, for almost an hour - priceless...

So that is what was going on! Wonderful to know. Funny too, that the cub played too rough and was put in her place by her mum.
It's wonderful to take the time and observe the animals we shoot, isn't it? We can learn so much from that and become better photographers as a result.

I love the oops look on the cub's face!
One of the gifts of photography is to make us be in the moment, and actively observe and this certainly was the case here. The little cub and mother were an absolute joy and privilege to watch together.
