Stayin' by Momma

This little guy heard our safari vehicle approaching. He stood up, turned to face us, put his ears up and looked confidently and curiously at us, albeit ready to dart away. All from within safe inches of his relaxed and unconcerned Momma's body. Had she flinched, he would have been off in an instant.
