Lovely capture, the soft light is so nice for the details and colors. Love the pose with the cub looking over mom's back.

A nice perch on top of the termite mound in sweet soft light. It almost looks like one body and two heads with the cub sitting mostly hidden behind its mother and the soft grass makes a lovely backdrop for this cheetah duo.

A very pretty duo- I'm with Carol- almost looks like 2 heads and one body! :). I like their different expressions.

Very nice expressions of the mother and cub showing what looks to be a different mindset as the mother appears confident and the cub a bit hesitant of their surroundings.. The slightly muted light seems perfect for this image.

Great soft light and setting, I also like the intimate mood.
