Back to the lion cubs again (I bet you thought we were done with them!). This is the female cub who I affectionately referred to ask "Bumpy" because of the lump on her nose. She and her siblings/parents were real rough-housers all the way through their time at the zoo, so I guess some minor bumps and bruises here and there were inevitable. :)

Sacramento Zoo, 2015.

Nice size comparison between sheathed and unsheathed claws.

Thank you. :) I'm still searching for the perfect lion cub shot, but this girl was really endearing, and the bump on her nose just made me love her even more. Glad you like the shot!

Yup, in a weird way, I think the bump makes her even more adorable. Beauty in imperfection, I guess. :)

Glad you like it. She was super adorable, and much more pose-happy than her siblings for sure. The nose bump just added character. ;)

Truly a magnificent shot!  Her eyes, expression and depth are what I'd expect from an adult!   So beautiful!

Thanks! She definitely does have that sort of precocious "I'm going to eat you" face down pat. ;)
