As the only true social cats lions give the opportunity for documenting interactions amongst pride members. These shots are more about cubs and their mom, aunts, uncles and cousins. A few are of single individuals...hope you enjoy.

I sure do enjoy them, Eric.
It's very pleasing behavior set. #2 puts a big smile on my face.

Great set Eric I love the blind devotion of the cubs following mom into the water ,most big cats shy away from it and in fact #7-8 they look a little confused. Is that female marking her path for the cubs in #6?

Delightful series, Eric. Love the roaring young male in #8. Wonderful pose and lovely warm tones in #10. Also just noticed the Blacksmith Lapwig taking in the show.

cool set Eric, nice images of the family members. I might rotate #5 a tad to level the water in the shot. #5 and 6 have different white balance or were they processed differently ?

I say it over and over again because I think it almost every time I view your safari images... what a privilege you must feel to experience these up close encounters so often.
I have learned so much from your photos and narrative Eric, so thank you.

These are excellent for the reasons expressed in your introduction, the sense of community is quite obvious and enjoyable to see.
My favorites are 1, 2, 7, 9, and 10 (I would be tempted to crop in to just mother and cub as another option on #1)

Love your work Eric, thanks for sharing your passion with us.

...Show more

You are much too kind Kirk...and I've previously posted image #1 cropped to just mother and cub so you are right on point And yes, I never ever ever take for granted how lucky I am to see these guys and spend time with them. The sense of timelessness as it relates to Africa is omnipresent. What these animals do hasn't changed in thousands of years...and to witness it is almost like stepping back in time. How I wish I could go back in time to the days of Stanley and Livingston or Ernest Hemmingway (of course I would still have my digital SLR and malaria pills ) and see what the continent was like then. But there are still places that are unspoilt and that feeling can almost be replicated. When I stood under the baobab tree that Livingston lived under for two years it was very eerie. I am never as happy or at peace as when I am in Africa with my family.
Thanks again my friend for such kind words.
Eric
