Location: Masai Mara, Kenya
Species: Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)

After watching a cheetah hunt, from start to finish, we followed sleek cat as it moved it's kill into the shade.

In the Masai Mara, and particular in the area where we watched the hunt, can sometimes be quite difficult as there were not many shrubs or trees around.

Photographing scenes like this is always quite tough but it's a privilege to still be able to witness scenes like this in the wild.
