A cub and sub adult lioness carefully approach my lens under a wonderful winter sunset in Zambia's South Luangwa Nat Park.
I love the upward glance on that young cub!

Captured using an L bracket, ballhead/flipped monopod and remote CamRanger.

Nikon D810
Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 G2
f/6.3 -.33EV
fill flash (rear curtain) -1.3EV
1/250s
ISO500@ 55mm.

Cheers
Marc

Another original off the wall style shot, Marc. Its not only the cub, mother is giving a funky stare too! Love the perspective in these images.

This is pretty fantastic Marc. You did an amazing job of balancing the foreground w/ the sunset.
In addition, the mother's gaze at you is so compelling.

cheers,
bruce
