18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

5 Cheetahs from 3 different families have united for the very first time ever. There is a leader also for this newly formed group and normally the leader always takes the first step in attacking and all others follow. Since they are strong 5 member team they make a kill each day. They also have a unique style of making a kill, unlike normal stalking and sprint. The catch of this photo is the perfect attacking position and the low-level shot.
