Grumpy Ma

Species: African Lioness | Location: Maasai Mara National Park, Kenya

It was a rainy and very cloudy late afternoon. Light was really bad and we came across a pride of lions that were feeding over their kill of a buffalo. This lioness was handicapped—her right front leg was injured. She had her meal already and was about to lay down to rest, but her cub was restless—just like our young kids. This kiddo gave her lots of trouble and she had to push the cub away few times. Later this cub seemed to understand mom's difficulty and tried to comfort her.

About The Photographer

Cropped ravi tennakoon
My Passion for photography started from my young age even though i could not afford to own a camera. i used to barrow camera's from friends n went on clicking shots of nature. Being a wildlife lover photography really gave me an opportunity to record beautiful moments I witness in the wild and allow the same to be available for others to see. I believe photography can be used as the media to take a message to everyone with regards to how important it is to preserve nature.
