Morkel, there were a couple there, (the Naturescape ones), that didn't allow hotlinking, so I've just edited those ones out. Matt

Taken at Hluhluwe NP, South Africa.

We were about to leave the park, when the ranger told us that there were 7 lions in a tree. So we changed our plans and went to that place.

It was already about noon and the light was very bad, so the pictures are not that good at all.

A matched pair!........................... But it does show the difference in camera quality & the skill of a photographer!

In fact, till this moment I had been very pleased with my little cub!

Here are her sisters, one still feeding! They fed for two days which I think is about the norm for a big kill.

Mind you on the second day the air was a bit rich!
