It's the Lion Spring! - as a young lion cub leaps towards its unwitting father.  The king of the jungle seems unaware of the youngster flying towards his mane as he walks on.<br />
<br />
Having recently finished feasting upon a wildebeest, the cub was excitable and ready to play.  The photos were taken by wildlife photographer Jie Fischer at the Maasi Mara National Reserve, in Kenya.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
