Lens: Nikon 200mm-500mm F/5.6
Description: A female cheetah sits atop a termite mound and scans the mara landscape in search of prey to feed her three cubs.
Story from behind the lens: I had followed this cheetah family of a mother and her three cubs for a couple of hours. My guide Dominic, from Kicheche Mara, said she was in the search of prey to feed her three cubs. It was my first time seeing a cheetah in the flesh. This photo, I think, captures the regal elegance of the cheetah.
