Description: The cheetah was hungry, searching for its prey. Then saw few wildebeest few meters away from it. Suddenly the spotted cat sprinted toward the wildebeest, causing it to run for its life.

Story from behind the lens: It was the game plan of two brothers. Wandering here & there for their prey since they were very hungry. After one unsuccessful attempt to zebra, they were searching for the right moment to target their prey. The moment came when they saw few wildebeest. One brother was pushing prey to another brother. Their telepathy and synchronization of work was outstanding to witness. The cheetah started spring towards a wildebeest was targeting for and eventually it started running towards our vehicle. I got fantastic head on shot of chasing of cheetah to wildebeest.
