Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Lawrence Noble
The lion pride we followed early one morning in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa, included mature females, young adults and cubs. Here, in a quiet moment, a cub appears to appreciate an affectionate pat on the head from an older lion.
Location: Kirkman's Kamp, Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa
