Photo and caption by Mita Ghosh
This photograph reflects the challenge that almost every parent faces—a child who will not listen. We watched the mother lioness instruct her cub to not follow her as she tried to approach prey and go for the kill. But the cub did not listen and followed mother anyway. The lioness had to stop her mission. After the failed mission, the lioness disciplined her cub. It looked like the disciplining of the lioness went in from one ear of the cub and out the other. This photo captures that moment.
