Big cat camouflage in Kenya

I took this shot after a long day collecting zebra poop for fieldwork in the Ol Pajeeta Conservancy, Kenya. We were racing home on our 4x4 to make it back for dinner when we caught a glimpse of movement to our left. Nothing like almost (but thankfully not) missing a cheetah sighting to end the day!
