Description: Topi kill by Tatu Bora, the famous Cheetah coalition in Mara. Their eyes/faces speak different stories. From the magnificent five (Tano Bora), to two cheetahs a few weeks after this shot, sadly.

Story from behind the lens: I was lucky to have witnessed a Topi kill by Tatu Bora, although sad to watch. It was impressive to see their teamwork, speed and strength. One of the main reasons to visit the Mara in June was to see the coalition, having missed Tano Bora earlier. They lived up to their reputation. We had to drive a couple of hours to reach the place where they were reported to have been spotted.
