Pictured: Sequence 4 of 8: The cub shaking off the rain
A leopard cub shakes the rain off its fur before cuddling up to its mother. The newborn sent raindrops flying as it shook its head from side to side on a tree branch.
The cub appeared energised by the rain and encouraged his reluctant mother to play. These photographs were taken at the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya by wildlife photographer Leighton Lum. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
