Cheetah chasing Thomson gazelle among whistling thorns
A cheetah chases a Thomson's gazelle in a clearing amongst whistling thorn acacia trees. It has golden fur covered with black spots, and its tail is thrown out at an angle for balance. Shot with a Nikon D850 in the Masai Mara in Kenya in July 2018.
