Just back from another amazing trip to South Luangwa & Vumbura plains.

With one highlight being:

A 5 month old lion cub, relaxes under another glorious winter sunset in Zambia's South Luangwa Nat Park.
Captured using an L bracket, flipped ballhead & monopod and CamRanger remote

Nikon D810
Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 G2
f/6.3 -1.33EV
fill flash (rear curtain) -1.7EV
ISO125@ 70mm.
