Description: A mother cheetah with her three cubs all stand on a log keeping watch in different directions.

Story from behind the lens: It was early in the day and this mother cheetah was on the lookout for food; she was clearly hungry. She found this fallen log to gain a better view of the surrounding area. Her three cubs joined her on the log as she scanned for prey. At this moment, all four were captured looking in different directions as if on lookout duty. It was a special moment with these four cats, one that doesn't happen often.
