How has this not been critiqued already!
This is such a special photo.
+++ The pose of the female with the cub in her mouth and the way the small lion is all curled up with it's mouth slightly open... just outstanding!
Exceptional POV with superb eye-contact from the female.
Well composed aswell.
Sharp with excellent details and clarity.
I love the golden colours.
--- Nothing what-so-ever :D
Very well done Gerhard,

Wonderful to see you here again.
Hope you have been well my friend.
This is a splendid shot of a splendid creature.
A great moment beautifully captured. Perfect exposure,composition and detail as always.
You certainly haven't lost your touch .. or your nerve. Looks as though you've been spotted too.
Your note is very interesting. Did you catch any of the cub - killing going on at all.
This shot of the lioness is splendid anyway.
Keep well,and drop by whenever you can.

I didn't know all that about lions. Thank you! nature sure can be brutal. Your photo however is just wonderful. One doesn't notice the cub in the thumbnail and is pleasantly surprised. It's a wonderful shot. How special to have witnessed this scene...
