These are spotted hyena pups emerging from their den in the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Mum here is wearing a tracking collar which was hardly photogenic. Ideally I wanted to place a pup between that and me to obscure it but they were bouncing around so much it was nigh on impossible. But with the limited depth of field I think I got away with it, even if only in part.

To join us in August to photograph the great migration in the Masai Mara visit our Masai Mara Photo Tour website here.
