Morning, early May, Maasai Mara, Kenya. Although the long rains were petering out, today the clouds were burgeoning again, perhaps for the last time. I drove slowly on the treacherous tracks, slipping and skidding, looking all around, hoping to re-connect with The Marsh Pride of lions. The animals I encountered appeared completely indifferent to the conditions. They were intent on feeding – elephants and giraffes continued to browse in the forest, impalas continued to graze in the woodland, and zebras dotted the plains. I encountered The Marsh Pride, at last, five lionesses and eight cubs walking easily to their favourite resting place, a sheltered dry river bed. I have known this pride, on and off, for several years now. They are very good about letting you watch them. They have even rested in the shade of my car on a few occasions. The pride had eaten this morning and the cubs were in an energetic mood. The lionesses were remarkably tolerant of their mischiefs. I was hoping for a photograph that would juxtapose these contrasting moods and, after an hour of trying, I ended up with this – the cub is intense, the mother is aware yet indifferent.
