Lion cubs!

Audrey was shooting some photos for our friend and neighbor, John Banovich.

John is putting out a book of his artwork and had flown in some lion cubs for the cover. I stopped in at the shoot for a bit to watch the cubs romp around in the late afternoon sun. Amazing experience to be able to hold one of these animals.
