A rare photo opporunity in many ways...mama Cheetah on the look out for nearby lions...5 surviving cubs at about 4 weeks of age...wonderful light due to high clouds...smooth background...likly a once in a lifetime photo for me...the odds of seeing this again are 1 in a million. Photo taken in thee Masai Mara, Kenya Africa.

 

This photo captured with:
