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.
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.
