Wow- how to capture the moment! You really had to be quick to get this one. This is just an amazing shot-how unique to see the Cheetah right behind, seen through the antlers.

Amazing chase capture, Marc, and what a moment to get the cheetah placed so perfectly behind its quarry and between the horns!
