Description: An image showing a cheetah family embracing tough weather.

Story from behind the lens: The Rainy season in Maasai Mara is not easy on big cats. The tall overgrown grass is bad for their survival as it reduces visibility. That means hunting becomes extremely difficult and the cats have to travel further to find food. This Cheetah mother lost 3 of her 4 cubs to this weather when crossing rivers in search of food. At this point, she had 2/4.
