Randy and Douglas,
Story behind that last photo. I was actually trying to get a shot from another vantage point, but other photographers were already camped out with their super telephotos crowding the area with their 600mm (of the IS and VR varieties), gimbals, and gitzos. So there I was with my "lowly" 300 and tcx2, relegated to the children's viewing area which was enclosed in finger smeared and scratched glass with no room for a tripod. The prime viewing area was obstructed by hills and shrubbery for the spot the pride was hanging out at so I thought the current spit I was at was better than nothing. After about two minutes of waiting and avoiding little childrens' attempts at overrunning me, The lion cubs decided to start being playful closer to my area and it gave me a chance to snag a few handheld shots.
Dumb luck wins!
