[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rencontrer un groupe de lionnes avec leurs petits est un privilège. Spectacle permanent assuré: ils courent après leur queue, vont défier leur père qui les envoie valser à 4m d'un simple revers de patte, vont têter leur mère, se sautent dessus les uns les autres dans des roulés-boulés... et finissent par s'écrouler pour s'endormir au creux du ventre de leur mère, épuisés de tant d'aventures

Meeting a troup of lions with their cubs is a privilege. Non-stop exhibition: they try to catch their own tails, go suck their mothers, try to challenge big males which send them 4m away with a mere scratch, jump on one another and roll together, ... until they fall asleep against their mother's belly, totally exhausted by all these experiences

Hello Patrick,

Excellent photo.
Beautiful colours with good definition.
Sharpness and composition are fantastic.
Good notes.

Tres belle scene. Oui ca doit etre des instants magiques de regarder ca.
Tres net. Belles lumiere et couleurs.
Tres belles expressions.
Le cadrage est bon. Il serait parfait avec plus d'espace en haut, moins en bas et en incluant la pointe de la queue a gauche.

great-intimate capture, TFS Ori

Bonjour Patrick !
Quelle merveilleuse photo, et puis quels moments merveilleux vous avez dû passer à observer cette petite famille ! Jolis détails, belle composition, mais ce que j'aime le plus ce sont encore ces jolies couleurs chaudes et pleines de vie. L'expression du lionceau le plus à droite, celui qui regarde en l'air vers sa mère, est à croquer. Félicitations !

bonjour patrick

Hi Patrick,
this is a fantastic shot!
The lighting is wonderful.
Very, very sharp and clear.
Great composition.

Superb work!


Hallo Patrick
What an adorable, endearing and cute little threesome with their mom, captured in their natural surroundings. This is definitely a photo to ooh and aah about. It has a high cuteness factor as well as humanlike features. A mom no matter human or animal is always there for her sibling. This is a stunning photograph and deserves a round of applause. I like the emotion captured on the two little ones in the front of the lioness. It is really lovingly and tender. I appreciated and enjoyed this one a lot.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Great moment, of course.
For instance I do like the way the first cub is looking. But overall it's well done with a lot of interaction between the mom and the cubs going on..
I like th point of view; surprisingly low as if you were laying into the savanna grasses..
Once again...good light!
A little nit is that the tail is cut off somewhat..
But overall the photo has so much to offer.

Maybe the last drop at that time, another good catch from, how gorgeous is to be in Africa.
