The Wounded Prince
Photo and caption by Cameron MacPhail
This image is of a young lion cub, the day after he had been in a nasty fight with a warthog. His sisters and mother had just gotten up to leave him to his fate, and we could only watch as he struggled to get up and limped after them. We did not see him again. Shot with a Canon 5D at f/5.6, 1/1000s.
Location: Okavongo Delta, Botswana, Africa
