Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Staton Rabin

When the flowers and trees are starting to bud out in early springtime shades of yellow and light green, this one-year-old lion cub, feeling his oats, finds an appropriately majestic perch. His adult mane of darker fur is just beginning to grow at the back of his neck and shoulders.

Location: Bronx Zoo, New York City
