On my recent trip to Kenya, I spent time with the same 3 cubs. It is amazing we were able to photograph the same set of cubs in the wild.!!!

Behind The Lens

Location
Musiara Marsh area of the Maasai Mara.
Time
The photograph was taken early morning at around 7am, the cubs and their pride had been feeding on a wildebeest the adults had taken during the night.
Lighting
The was very soft and low,
Equipment
Canon 1DMKIV: Canon 600mm MKII; @f10: ISO 1600
Inspiration
We had followed the Marsh pride fro over an hour on this particular morning, i wanted the background cubs to be visible but not sharp hence the f10 aperture
Editing
Very little just enough to lift the image.
In my camera bag
Canon1 DX: Canon 1D MKIV: Canon 7D MKII: Canon 200-400 zoom with 1.4 extender: Canon 600mm MKII: Canon 70-200mm f2.8 canon 400mm f2.8: Canon 16-35 f2.8: Canon 24-104 f4: Canon 1.4 MKIII extender. Bean bag: gitzo tripod & monopod : unique ball ; various lee filters
Feedback
Patience is a virtue, we are not privileged to witness scenes like this every day, be prepared and good luck
