Young Lioness

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Jane Cytryn

This beautiful young lioness, about 2 years old, was perched on the branch of a tree. I would have loved to have been able to scratch her forehead for her. While her mother slept on a limb above, the young one soothed her own itch.

Location: Maasai Mara, Kenya
