Early morning. Western India.

We were in a truck looking for lions. I was so excited because the day before one of the locals had mentioned he had seen two lionesses with six cubs. Each lioness had three cubs each. I was not in India to photograph lions but after listening to this news from the locals I could not wait to encounter them. 

My tracker stopped the truck; I picked my camera in anticipation. When I saw the lioness, I got off the truck and walked towards her. She was by her self, I knew the cubs, and the other lioness was close. I followed her, and soon she led me to all of them. In one moment I had sixteen eyes on me. I didn’t know if I should walk back to the truck or hold my ground. The lioness turned their faces away from me and started to walk in the opposite direction.

It was a relief, but again it was disappointing as I was left with another decision to make. Follow them or get back to the truck.

I decided to take pictures even though they were just lion tails. When I laid on the ground to get a better perspective this little one turned around and ran towards me. I got lucky with this image.

Had I quit a few minutes earlier, my luck would have quit on me as well.

Black & white lion cub pictures

Taking lion cub pictures with the mother around gets very very tricky. Lion cubs gestate for approximately 110 days and are born in a litter of between one and six babies. Although two to three cubs at a time are considered normal by the Predator Conservation Trust. Baby cubs are born blind and helpless, away from their pride. Shortly before the mother gives birth she leaves the lion pride and finds a safe place to give birth. The mother and baby lions stay in isolation for four to eight weeks. Even though taking lion cub pictures was tricky to capture, the images and the moments I experienced couldn’t compare to anything else.
