The three brother cheetahs gathering on an elevation before their morning hunt. One of them getting up and observing the land below.
We discovered these three cheetah brothers in the early hours of the morning on a little hill nearby our camp. They formed a beautiful composition, which I was privileged enough to capture.
Cheetahs are usually solitary animals, but sometimes they also form groups of up to two or even three animals. Later a ranger told me that only male cheetahs do this. Because a hunt is very exhausting for them, they sometimes stay together to split the effort.
These three beautiful cats woke up, stretching and yawning and repositioning themselves all the time. Then, the one at the top of the hill paused as he spotted a group of gazelle in the valley below.
After I took this picture they all got up slowly, stalking through the grass silently with their heads down, then crouched while waiting for the perfect moment to conclude the hunt. I was amazed at how quickly such a peaceful situation can change and it becomes one of life or death for the cheetah’s prey. It was a special moment.
