Lion Cubs
1

This past Sunday, I thought I'd visit the lion cubs again. It won't be too long, that they will be getting bigger. So like so many things in life, it's best to not wait to capture those moments, as they pass us by too fast.

Photo No. 1 - Here we are behind the glass waiting to see the lion cubs.  One can be seen nearby.

Photo No. 2 - The three of them were so playful.

Photo No. 3 - And here's another photo of them during the cloudy weather that we had. But at least it wasn't raining.

Photo No. 4 - The papa lion and the three baby cubs were laying around.

Photo No. 5 - Sometimes the cubs could get too playful, so the larger lions went up higher with what appeared to be a tactic to avoid them.

Photo No. 6 - But eventually one of the larger lions would come on down and the cubs would follow.

Photo No. 7 - All they wanted was to have a little fun.

Photo No. 8 - Ahhh...isn't that a cute one.

Photo No. 9 - The cubs would spend most of their time with the larger female lions but also liked to be with papa.

Photo No. 10 - Finally, here's another photo of papa high on a rock, where he spent most of his time watching everything around him.

Re: "I need some shades"

That's excellent.  You captured a precious moment with good depth of field and exposure.  The lighting was a little difficult between having both sunshine and shade, but you handled it well.  The composition is very good too, with us seeing the facial expressions.

Yes, we have to be careful.  Little kids can grip hard on the glasses and yank them off.  Then they won't let go.

Zoo Flower
1

While at the zoo this past Sunday, I saw this flower that I thought would look nice.  I took this during cloudy weather.  Yes, we are having spring flowers now in the Portland, Oregon area (including near record rain for the month of March).

After the Storm
1

This past Saturday we had so much rain in the morning, that I didn't think I was going to make it out.  Finally, in the afternoon the sun broke through and I tried to salvage the day a little by going outside and taking pictures.

Here's one I liked.  With all the rain that we had, it seems like the moisture was coming off the hills like steam in the brightness and heat of the sun.

Tree Flowers

While at the zoo on Sunday, I went back to take more pictures of the flowers that are on a tree deep in the forest. It doesn't get much sun here and these flowers are some of the first to appear in our area.

I kinda wanted to get out this weekend and try something new, but the weather was against me. Instead, I tried something new with something I have around the house. C&C welcome.
