  1. What a beautiful shot, and what a magnificent animal he is destined to become. Your photograph is awesome my friend, I will be waiting to see even more as he grows older and bigger.

    • Thank you! 🙂
      I love photographing animals, but – as you may have already noticed – big cats have a special place in my heart. I was so lucky to have a chance to see lion cubs last summer (my husband and I thought we’d have to wait until we were able to visit Africa) and spent many days & many hours photographing them. Me too, I look forward to watching them grow, and of course photographing their progress 🙂 Thank you so much again, my friend!

    • Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I am delighted you enjoyed this photo. I plan to post some more in the future, so if interested, please feel free to stop by again 🙂 Best wishes!

      I am happy to know you enjoy my photos, and very flattered you chose to use this little lion as your wallpaper 😀

      I wish you a great week too, and I’ll look forward to your future blog posts too!
      Warm wishes,
      Takami

    • Thank you! 😀 I thought it was one of those “feel good” moments, and, he was simply too cute. With all the terrible events that take place in our world, I thought it’s important to appreciate the good things too 😉 I hope you had a good weekend too. It’s Monday already… 😦

    • Hello Melanie-san!
      Please excuse my late reply (I was not at computer these days).
      Thank you for your kind words to my photo. Me too, I love big (and small) cats too 🙂 Now, I will see your photos ❤

  3. こんにちは。
    つぶらな瞳が可愛いですね^^
    目がばっちり合ってるみたいですね。こちらを向いて鳴いて(吠えて)いるのかな。
    大きな耳に太い足、どんどん強く風格ある姿に成長してゆくのでしょうね。
    でも今は可愛い^^

    • あわせかがみ様
      こんにちは!コメントありがとうございます☆
      その通りです、たまたま目がばっちり合ってしまいました(笑)
      かわいいけど、強い!流石のライオンの子です♡(^__^)

  4. Oh, this little guy is too sweet for words! What a joy to open your post and see your adorable photo of this cub, Takami. You made my day and my partner’s day! He has such a sweet face and I love his pink tongue. Very nice capture, my friend. This is a superb post to honor World Lion Day. Well done! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, my friend. :))

    • Good morning Jeannie! ❤

      I am thrilled to know you & your partner enjoyed this little guy. I loved his pink tongue, too! It was my first time to see a lion cub with my own eyes, and I was mesmerised, as you can imagine! 😀 Of course he was adorable, but it was obvious he was very powerful even at this tender age. He also seemed fearless, like a true king that he's destined to be! Not surprisingly, I spent many hours observing and photographing him (and his siblings) and became very sunburned. However, it was the worth the wait, and I hope to share more snapshots soon.

      Wishing you and your partner a wonderful week too!

    • Awww, shucks. Many thanks for your kind words. I am delighted if this little big cat could bring a smile to your face. In spite of all the things that happen in this world, there are moments like these, when I can feel hope. Haha, sorry, don’t mean to be too sentimental/melodramatic 😉

    • Thank you, dear Herve. It is also my hope, he grows healthy and strong, and become a true King of Animals 🙂 I also hope we (humans) can have deep respect for each other, and of all nature of this world 🙂
