African lion cubs

While observing members of a lion pride in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, photographer Theodore Mattas was enthralled watching two lion cubs. The resident of Macedonia, Greece, writes “they were chasing each other, playing and pretending to hunt. . . Finally they got tired of running, and I caught a tender moment.” Mattas used a Canon EOS 7D and a 500 mm lens.
