Mother and Cubs

Mother and Cubs, NDutu Area, Tanzania,

Nikon D300, 500mm +1.4TC


With my departure for my next photo safari in less than 7 days, I simply can’t wait to get my boots dirty again with the dust of Africa.  The above photo was taken on near NDutu Village in the southern area of the Ngorongoro National Park.  I had the wonderful experiance of spending several hours watching this mother with her six cubs.  Our guides estimated that the cubs were about six to eight weeks old.  What a treat.
