Wonderful scene, Bob! The interaction between mother and cub is beautifully captured, they are perfecty placed in the frame - while the setting and background vista take the shot to the next level. Superb image!

So beautiful in all ways-the tender moment and the gorgeous environment, both foreground and background. Priceless expression on mom's face. Lovely soft light...what more can I say! Just enchanting!

As others have already commented this is a wonderful image. My immediate impression is the foreground is in warm light whereas the background vista is in cooler light because it's more in the shade. Really sets off the cats extremely well.

I agree with Carol, really an emotional shot very well composed.
