This photo was captured while I was in the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya. I and my friends spent the whole day tracking this group of 5 cheetahs as they marked their territory in the park. They have become quite famous over the years in the park as they have changed from traditional cheetah behavior who normally are solitary hunters. They have adopted a new style of hunting as a group bringing about a lot more success. Proof of how nature continuously adapts to the tougher conditions.

I am based in Kenya and enjoy mainly wildlife and architectural photography.
