Description: Risasi's off-spring practicing on tree-climbing with a proud blink into the camera

Story from behind the lens: We were lucky with cheetah sightings in the Mara Triangle since Risasi and her three roughly four month old cubs were around almost every day with wonderful opportunities to see their progress in tree-climbing. On that specific day this little adventurous chap was the only one which made it half way up and was obviously very proud of its achievement.
