Species: Lion | Location: Maasai Mara, Kenya
We were on a morning game drive in Kenya when the call came to the guide about lion cubs. We found the spot, but someone in another vehicle had put down a camera on a motorized robot. The cubs from two or three families were extremely interested in the camera, as the owner kept moving it. The mother lions, however, were quite upset and kept trying to pull the cubs away. This picture is of one of the mothers and one of her cubs. Finally the camera owner pulled the camera back and left. The lionesses then moved their cubs away from the spot.

About The Photographer
I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments
