2009 Digital Calendar photo description 

"Learning to Tackle Prey"


Late afternoon in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Mpumalanga, several lionesses and

their cubs were resting up in some reeds on the banks of the Sand River. This

boisterous young cub emerged, grabbed a dry ball of elephant dung and

proceeded to kick it around and playfully tackled it as if it was a live prey waiting

to be caught and consumed


Lion - Panthera leo


Lion cubs tend to be woolly with greyish, spotted coats when born, changing to an adult coat by

three months of age


Nikon D3,  12.1 megapixels resolution,  FX-format with high-speed crop mode of 5.1-megapixels,
