Sweet capture! My only critique would be to crop it in from the top and right side a bit? I look forward to following and learning from you!

Amazing! The lighting is perfect and I love how all of the Cubs are looking in the same direction.

Behind The Lens

Location
this photo was taken on Serengeti in Africa. We were on a game drive and came up on Mom and her cubs watching the Migration.
Time
the photo was taken mid morning
Lighting
We were always able to get good side light for the subjects .
Equipment
the image was shot with a Canon 7D using 100-400 lense. shot using a sandbag for support.
Inspiration
the way the cubs stayed close to mom and would always look in the opposite direction from her.
Editing
minor adjustment to the whites and blacks in Lightroom
In my camera bag
everything but the kitchen sink. If you do not bring it you will need it.
Feedback
always make sure you can see all the eyes and feet. the eyes should be in focus
