Word-of-Day-Challenge-Jittery

~~~~~

jittery

nervous or unable to relax.

My hand was steady enough

to pat this cheetah…

…however, about 20 years earlier I was passed over

for a training/supervisor’s job because

of my shaking hands.

I was told I looked too nervous.

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.
