Loved finding these cubs at the end of an already wonderful day.

Cute indeed, great looks in 1 and 2. They look slightly overexposed on my screen. Maybe a bit more contrast or clarity would help?

Very adorable. To bad they don't stay that adorable later in life. Was this in a reserve or where?

All are excellent shot, but to me the second one is the best. The direct eye contact with mom really sets this one apart.

These are very cute. Just love the interaction between Mom and cub.
(Another option that I use quite often with Photoshop Elements, would be to raise the blacks a little in Camera Raw)

Great shots there teaco. What time of year was this and how was traffic?. I have also done the Serengeti (in Oct) and loved it very little traffic and plenty of wild life so I am wondering about my next trip, back to the Serengeti or another location.

Great shots! The 1st two shots I am sure will have stock value. There has got to be a huge market for product ads that use the mother-child interplay in the photos.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Histogram says they are ok...i prefer not to use extra contrast or clarity as i like the wildlife shots i do to remain as true to the real scene as possible.

This was august 21st. Traffic was terrible at the mara river, which is why i stayed well-away from the Wildebeest crossings and went looking for cats and other animals. It really needs some reguation down there at the river, the animals do not deal well with high-density traffic. There are too many places to visit over there - but the Mara/Serengeti are quite special i think, as the only place you'll get that density of animals is the Serengeti at migration time.

Thanks. I think the high iso may be a problem for stock, shame the little fellas didn't come out from the bushes a little earlier when there was a little more light,.

THANKS everyone for the comments and suggestions. REally appreciate it, and glad you enjoyed the pics.
