Description: Mother and daughter cuddle at the break of dawn
Story from behind the lens: As the sun rose in the Maasai Mara, Kenya one morning, we were treated to over an hour of affectionate display between Luluka (mum) and Jilime (daughter) - 2 characteristic leopards in the Mara. I was manifesting this thought in my mind that I would love to get a golden light frame of them hugging on the log and a few minutes later it happened. My hands were literally shaking from excitement as I shot this!
