Description: A mother cheetah with her lone male cub, snuggling and relaxing as the sun slowly sinks behind the hills.

Story from behind the lens: As we headed back towards camp for our last sundowner in Kenya, we came across a mother cheetah and her lone cub happily lounging, playing and finally snuggling together in the grass as the sun slowly sank down behind the hills. It was pure magic and surreal. We quietly sat nearby just watching in awe at the loving connection between mother and son. Truly the most epic experience to finish off an amazing adventure.
