Portrait of lion cub Fufik (Panthera leo) by AlesGola Portrait of lion cub Fufik (Panthera leo) by AlesGola
Portrait of lion cub Fufik (Panthera leo), which I took in 2010 in facility run by my friend Michal Prasek, great admirer of bic cats. Fufik (the male cub) was captured in rare moment of tranquility, othervise he saved no effort to chase either his siter Vinnie or us, photographers. It is great that photographs can bring you back great moments one had the privilidge to live through in the past :).

I love this photograph simply because it shows a tiny cub with all the potential to become an apex predator. 'Noble,' would be my human personification, but I would say that this little lion shows this with the tilt of it's head and the somewhat thoughtful gaze. I like the gentleness of the background, which cradles the cub with ambient power. I say power as the dark colours suggest a prescient storm; and even though calm, the cub's ears are pricked and eyes bright. He/she is certainly alert. The evening is crepuscular...and even though this is a cute cub...this is also a Lion.
What do you think?

Its good to be able to get close for better DOF. One can get rid of background, in this case the fence ;).

This is wonderful Lighting is perfect. Detail is crisp. But what I like most is the expression on the little guys face. He seems to be deep in thought.
