17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mock Battle Between Brothers

Our driver knew where to find Cheetahs. It didn't take long before w encountered a lone young male. While we were photographing him his brother showed up and they started playing. Their mock battles went on for a few minutes, then they would stop and a few minutes later resume. They had a nice relationship with each other.
