Description: One of the Mbili Bora Cheetahs with a gazelle kill

Story from behind the lens: This was the first hunt of the Mbili Bora Cheetahs the day after their third member was killed. For almost 4 hours they stalked and failed to catch anything, before finally settling for a gazelle calf that was unable to escape their pursuit. Once the undisputed kings of the Mara that could take down anything, without their strength in numbers they were back to eating scraps like the rest of the cheetahs.
