Description: A mother cheetah and her lone remaining cub embrace each other in a tender moment of bonding

Story from behind the lens: Cheetah mothers have a hard life, as they need to provide everything to their youngsters. This means that in addition to trying to keep them safe and fed, they also must play with them. This means that the mother and baby have a really close bond, and we were fortunate to witness this tender moment between the two as they took a break from the stresses of their day-to-day lives.
