Well.. i dunno really other than it's most likely as Males tend to kill young not of their own to bring the Lioness back into heat.  (I've personally not tried that approach... :D... can see a few issues with that)...  

Saw this little fella tucked away some distance to the male's right, watching him getting up... Bit tucked away and busy but was lucky to spot it.

Another beauty, Dave. The rain adds so much to the mood of the image. I'm thankful the youngster was hidden from the male. Looks like it was in a good hiding place with the thorns above. Great work!

I agree, very probably a little drip off the old puddle, Dave.  :wink: 

Lovely shot!

He looks very alert -perhaps a bit wary? Not bedraggled like "dad". Nice with the weeds and raindrops. I like how you kept the long top view- adds a lot to the drama and story.
