The Lion Cub’s Gaze – Weekly Travel Photo

Lion Cubs Playing at Sunset

This magical moment happened in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park while I was on safari.  We had stumbled onto a group of five lion cubs between the ages of 4-6 months just before sunset. Their mothers were off hunting and the cubs were taking a much-needed break after a day full of exploring and childish antics.  This cub in particular was feeling quite relaxed, though he still kept a close eye on us.  He repeatedly lounged around, rolled onto his back, and then stared at us almost as if inviting us to head over and to give him a tummy scratch.  His gaze was incredible and cut right to my core. Hands down some of my favorite moments from the Safari.

I Gave In – I’m Now On flickr

Glencoe Valley in the Scottish Highlands

After years of pressure from friends I’ve finally upgraded to flickr pro and begun uploading select photographs from my trips. So far there are a few shots from Ireland and the Scottish Highlands up. More to come soon.

If you’re an avid fan of my photography on Facebook or my main gallery you’ve probably seen most of these. However, for the casual viewer, they’ll probably be new to you. Also worth checking out if you want a quick review of some of the better shots from my trips.

So far I’ve put up shots from what I feel was the gorgeous but far less captivating leg of my July Ireland/Scotland trip…so keep an eye on the photostream for some of the incredible shots I snapped while meandering Scotland’s north coast and exploring the Orkney Islands. I’ll also have shots up from Northern Ireland and the Giants Causeway soon.

As always your thoughts, comments and requests are appreciated!
