Please, before you go to sleep tonight, think of ways you can reach out and help all the creatures out there—–humans as well. Lions.
“African Lionesses, Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya: Lions are the only truly social cats; the females and offspring reside together in prides. Typically hunting in groups, the lionesses prey mostly on large hoofed mammals. Within each pride, females will often reproduce in synchrony and cross-suckle their cubs.
“It was early morning in the Great Rift Valley as we searched for a famous pride of lionesses. Since it was very cold, the females were piled on top of each other, forming groups and staying close. This particular set grabbed my attention because they were staring glassy-eyed in different directions. I wanted to capture all possible details in the frame with a tight crop to make a striking black and white conversion.”
Let Kids Be Kids advocates for the rights of all those in the animal kingdom. Yep, humans too. And, in particular, all those Lions out there.
