Description: A male cheetah wanders through the savannah during sunset, looking up into the trees.

Story from behind the lens: As the sun went down, we trailed behind three male cheetahs stalking a lone antelope. With the arrival of an opportunistic hyena, however, the hunt was foiled. Sensing that the hyena would steal their meal if they successfully hunted the antelope, the brothers changed course–deciding instead to find a place to rest for the night. They wandered through the acacia trees, craning their necks to scout out a suitable napping spot.
