As much as people consider him a very powerful animal, he still has his tender moments. One of those moments we can see here, when a lion first meets its cub. He becomes unrecognizable at that moment.
Suzi Eszterhas is responsible for the scenes we can see, because she is engaged in photographing such animals. This was recorded in the Masai Mara, a Kenyan national reserve. You will be softened by the scenes.
Lionesses often do not want to bring their cub closer to the male, but here everything seems to have gone very nicely and comfortably. Dad and son, seven weeks old, hung out and enjoyed spending their time together.
Although this 36-year-old from California, who is responsible for all these scenes, it took several months to follow this family, she says it was still worth it. She has seen many beautiful scenes of this magnificent family.
He says that it is very difficult to take a good photo of a baby animal, but if you wait long enough, anything is possible. The right moment will come then.
This little lion along with her siblings, photographer Susie noticed while they were very young. They were only 3 weeks old, and at that time they mostly only connected with their mother. It was only after the seventh week that the mother decided to bring them closer to the father.
Suzi followed this family for a long time in order to show them better in the pictures.
The magnificent lion was very gentle with his cubs, although the mother did not let them out of sight in case their dad became rougher.
As Eszterhas said, the little lion was a little scared, but the father was really gentle. They played and hung out, and the mother was careful on the side and was ready to stop hanging out at any moment if the father became rude to the little lions.
