Description: Cheetah Cub with Rabbit Ear

Story from behind the lens: We found Risaisi and her two cubs early one morning. After a flurry of activity, we could see Mom had made a kill of an African Hare, which was barely large enough to feed her two cubs. As one cub was feasting on the majority of the rabbit, I noticed this one wander a little ways off. Then I saw he had the bunny ear in his mouth; with the sun just risen it shined through the ear as he had his desert.
