Cub Cuddles | Photograph by Molly McCormick ( @mollymccormickphoto) .
“I shot this moment in the Central Serengeti. Being a big cat girl, it was the highlight of my trip,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Molly McCormick. “These little furballs are the absolute cutest, and seeing them interact with the rest of the lionesses was incredible. They are very loud when mom and the rest of the lionesses were present, but once they left to go hunt, you couldn’t hear or see them. They hid in the tall grass, and waited for their return. I love the golden glow from the sunset.” This photo was submitted to our “For Your Shot Instagram” assignment.

“This is such a sweet moment, Molly! I love the tenderness between the lioness and her beloved cub. The light is lovely and I love how you framed this moment filled by green and layers of grasses.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas ( @kemcnicholas)
