Description: Nora, the 11-year-old female cheetah

Story from behind the lens: My first photo at Masai Mara. I have waited for five years to achieve my dream of travelling to Masai Mara and photographing this beautiful cheetah called Nora. She hadn't made a kill for four days at the time I took this photo. I stood with her for the whole day as she was monitoring the area for a target when she found a Thompson gazelle. Even though she looks fierce and has 11 years of experience, luck wasn't her biggest ally.
