Description: A female cheetah and her lone cub yawn at the same time prior to heading off to hunt.

Story from behind the lens: We found a mother and cheetah cub sleeping in an open area of Naboisho Conservancy. There were some goats and herders in the distance, and our guide predicted that once they had moved off the cheetahs would get up and become active. He was right, and the cheetahs rose from their relaxation and began to yawn at the same time, before playing together and then heading off on a hunt.
