Description: Hyena mother was milking the babies and for a moment they all look at the lens of a camera.

Story from behind the lens: It was last morning in Mara and our guide decided to explore the Topi Plains in search of Topi Pride lions. But on the way we passed a hyena clan. Obviously there was activity because of the presence of babies. Mother was nursing her two babies and our guide positioned the vehicle to get this shot. Mother kept watch on us and inquisitive babies glanced at us for a brief second and this image was made. The morning side backlit helped to get rim light effect.
