Golden eyes

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the National Zoo. I love shooting lions. They're probably my favorite subjects at the zoo. While the cubs get most of the attention these days, I think Luke is still the rock star. The male cubs are really teenagers now—adult lions who haven't grown their manes yet. While I was shooting the lions, I overheard kids mistaking the male cubs for female lions. The older kids explained to the younger kids that you could tell they were girls because they didn't have big manes. I didn't think I should explain.
