Lion Cubs

Lion Cubs

A couple nights ago two lionesses killed a young buffalo about two hundred yards from our house. One of them was the lactating female that we have seen in the area recently and in the morning she was at the kill with her three little cubs – very exciting as it was the first sighting I have had of these cubs this season. I thought the aged photo/sepia look suited the images quite well.

The cubs are only about 2 months old and so aren’t eating any meat yet although they are already beginning to learn how. This little fellow got hold of the buffalo’s tail and chewed on that for a while…
