Looking back on my collection of lion cub photos I was reminded just how short a time they remain babies. Since we were blessed with two sets of cubs a year apart I got to witness the process twice. The cubs are so cute, so playful in their first 6 months on this earth! They romp and stalk each other in mock battle but then you’ll see them using each other as a pillow to take naps. In the process of learning how to become a fierce lion they learn how to snarl, roar and listen to mama. I’ll have a lot to share with the people I’ll meet in the Boston area zoos soon enough. These are treasured shots that will remain in my collection as I reach out to a new community, new zoos to capture.
