Lions differ from all other cats by being very social. The bond between pride members can be quite strong. This pride had just split up in separate directions during the night and witnessing them so delighted to see each other again in the early morning was a truly heartwarming experience. The moment it started happening I knew I wanted to capture the feeling of the moment, that joy and love … and to me this image perfectly sums up the moment. That is how I want to remember it.
