I had just passed Bedinkt waterhole and came across a female cheetah with her 18month old male cub after they had killed a springbok. Having eaten their fill the mother walked away and the cub decided to chase the jackals that had waited for there turn on the kill. I was able to take this image of this sub- adult male cheetah as he passed his mother at full speed heading for the jackals. I used my vehicle as an hide and the lens and camera was positioned on a Wimberly gimbal head for support.
