Over the period of a few days I had captured numerous images of this lioness with her three cubs. Being a father of two kids myself, it was lovely to see them playing around, and getting to know their different characters and personalities. This was the essence of the picture that I wanted to bring across. I tried many variables – different lenses, exposures, times and positions, but none seemed right. Then, half an hour before sunset, I had Mother Nature on my side. I fired away many shots, but only one of the whole series was the long-awaited image. This picture is a miracle to me: the sovereign and proud mother, surrounded by her three cubs; the cheeky one on the right, the shy one enjoying a cuddle on her mother’s back, and the attentive one on the left.
