Description: One of three, this cheetah cub climbed up the tree quickly. However it was struggling to climb down.
Story from behind the lens: It was such a delight to watch the three cheetah cubs playing; so I requested our guide to wait and spend time with them. One of them climbed up the tree and I was lucky to get this eye level shot with the vast expanse of the Mara and the sky behind blending into the bokeh. This shot was possible because we were on a small hill with open views of the Mara behind. Thanks to my excellent guide Daniel.
