Absolutely Lords of Their Place…

Newer Older

OK! This one is the last picture.
Cubs are always fun to watch, a delight we often need, especially after we’ve been watching adult lions that have been involved in the killing and fighting that make up most of their active life… cubs look cute, of course, but it’s their behavior that fascinates me. They get to an age when everything is a new experience, they often break away to check out a hole or any movement in the grass, and sometime they get lost from the pride.

Ok! Esta é a última foto.
Os filhotes são sempre um divertimento para se observar, um prazer que nós necessitamos freqüentemente, especialmente depois de assistir leões adultos envolvidos numa matança ou numa briga, composicão da maior parte de suas vidas ativa… Os filhotes são graciosos, sem dúvidas, mas é o seu comportamento que me fascina. Eles chegam a uma idade quando tudo é uma nova experiência, eles freqüentemente escapam para verificar um buraco ou qualquer movimento na grama, e às vezes acabam perdidos da alcatéia.
