Our last evening in South Africa, 2013.

An unexpected game drive…

…produced this sighting of two 8 week old lion cubs.

Twenty minutes later and after nearly 300 photos

of lion cubs watching tourists

we departed due to failing light.

So lucky.

That was early October 2013,

their mother was dead in mid-September 2014.

Until this week we have wondered if they survived.

Yesterday (Saturday) we heard via Facebook

that they still roam the area.



One Word Sunday Challenge:  Luck





having or showing a feeling of
vague or regretful longing.


I would venture to suggest

that these images…

…depict two wistful pups.


Neither pup wanted to be shown

how to eat a bone,

they just wanted to eat.  🙂
