Family of Six

Mother and Six Cubs

Nikon D2x, 500mm, f 5.6 at 1/500 sec


One of my all time favorite shots from my 2008 Safari.  While it is not uncommon to see a  mother Cheetah and a couple of cubs, not often do you see six cubs.  Our guides estimated the age of the cubs to be about two months.  The great event was seeing the same mother and five of the six cubs in 2009 as they chased down a Reed Buck.

Cheers and happy photo’ing
