17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Lioness and Cubs

Our guide had brought us to a secluded area near Lake Masek, Tanzania where we discovered a big "Daddy Lion" and nearby, a lioness and her cubs. Mama Lion was quite relaxed, despite our presence, and the cubs were full of youthful spirit, especially the one who was enjoying watching us while upside down.
