Description: Sunrise with brother cheetah

Story from behind the lens: I had spent a few days following the cheetah brothers - Mbili and Milele. On one occasion, one of the brothers had taken off on his own, in pursuit of the company of another female cheetah. The other half spent the night alone. The following morning, just as the sun rose, we found the lonely bachelor on a mount waiting and calling for his brother. In the morning's silence, you could hear his chirp from all directions. Clearly unsettled and unhappy that he had been left alone, I took this shot of him as he finally sat and waited for his other half to join him again.
