Loving all the photos...... Thanks everyone. Not anywhere near the standard of the other images uploaded but here are a couple from the Mara, Christmas 2010. Will add others when I have a bit more time.

Taken at Hluhluwe NP, South Africa.

We were about to leave the park, when the ranger told us that there were 7 lions in a tree. So we changed our plans and went to that place.

It was already about noon and the light was very bad, so the pictures are not that good at all.

A matched pair!........................... But it does show the difference in camera quality & the skill of a photographer!

In fact, till this moment I had been very pleased with my little cub!

Here are her sisters, one still feeding! They fed for two days which I think is about the norm for a big kill.

Mind you on the second day the air was a bit rich!

Wow there are some really interesting angles in this series. The last really captures the essence of a hunt.
