One of the Mashaba female’s cubs shows its distaste at the approach of a hyena. Although these cubs are only just over 4 months old, they are already showing signs of how quickly they are learning. Photograph by Amy Attenborough

Beautiful light and a great photographic opportunity allowed me to hand hold my camera for a good ten minutes waiting to get this shot of the Mashaba female’s cub as he locked eyes with us after repositioning and feeding.
