Young lion with butterflies by Gaston Piccinetti

While visiting Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa one morning, Gaston Piccinetti came across a family of lions. "It was a rainy day," the photographer writes, "and this young lion was fascinated by the butterflies." A resident of Spain, Piccinetti used a Canon EOS 1D Mark III with a 300mm lens and 2x extender.
