Description: One of the male cheetah Kiraposhe boys walks on after a failed hunt. The herd of Wildebeest watch on closely.

Story from behind the lens: We set out on the tail of the Kiraposhe boys, Mbili and Milele after spending the afternoon waiting for them to start their hunt. As the sun began to set they headed off with a jackal following closely behind. They entered a plain filled with herds of wildebeest and zebra who quickly sounded the alarm. Their cover was blown. The boys attempted a sprint towards the wildebeest but failed to lock on to a target. It was yet another failed hunt for them. The wildebeest watched as the pair went off towards the neighbouring conservancy.
