Lioness drinking from a puddle in the road

We were on a game drive through the Serengeti when we saw this lioness getting ready to cross the road with her cubs. As we got closer, we saw there was a puddle in the road from the rains a couple days ago. She actually stopped to drink water from the puddle, as her cubs continued across the road, and the jeeps lined up on either side of her to watch. She was entirely unconcerned with the tourists taking her photos, though she paid attention when one of her cubs started to cry!
