I'm pleased with this one from the Mara in 2016 (Feb). Malika's son trying to figure out if he can take down a zebra.

Amidst White Wildflowers

 

Photographed at 5:42 pm on 6 February, 2014 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 100, 1/200 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

Our all-day drive in Masai Mara was coming to a close, with thoughts of dinner mixed with memories of a series of superb bird, reptile and mammal sightings.

 

@Anthony Gitau spotted two cheetah resting amidst white wildflowers. They were somewhat difficult to see in the reduced light which made his spot all the more impressive.
