Straight from the airstrip at the Mara, first stop were these famous cheetahs who according to our guides have apparently been on the BBC and/or National Geographic. Early afternoon, so they were just lazing around. We got a lot of good shots up close but I'd had this shot in mind before heading on this trip, so asked our guide to just back up enough to let me use my friend TJ's wide angle lens, no chance changing lenses on safari, it's just wayyy to dusty. I just wish the cheetahs weren't so lazy and were sitting up, would've made for a better shot, but I can't complain.
