Description: Cheetah mother and cub

Story from behind the lens: This photo wast taken around 18 months ago. Kweli had not made a kill for three days and had moved to a high set where she could get a good view of the plain below. While her two other cubs we playing in the rocks, one took up a position next to its mother as if to take its place in scanning the plain below for potential prey.
