Call of the Wild | Photograph by Linda Porter, National Geographic | September 26, 2014

A lioness roars a warning to her cubs in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. “She was perched on a hill right on the side of the dirt road,” writes Your Shot member Linda Porter, who captured the picture on an evening game drive.

On an opposite hill were three young male lions, which sometimes kill cubs. “Our guide knew this lioness had three young cubs that were were out of sight and hidden. We observed her for over an hour as she continued to call out to her cubs, warning them of the potential danger that lurked across the way. Unlike most of our children, these cubs were extremely obedient and remained hidden.”
