Description: A female cheetah chases a female common impala down a rocky slope. She has golden fur covered with black spots, and her tail is thrown out at an angle for balance.

Story from behind the lens: I went to Kicheche for the cheetah hunts, and this is the first one I saw during the two weeks of my stay in January 2024. It had rained every day up to that point, so this female cheetah had to cope with soggy ground and standing water, but she still managed to catch her prey, which was a female common impala...!
