A cheetah mom and cubs rest in the afternoon heat. We had gone out looking for cheetah near the Ndutu Safari Lodge in the Serengeti plains of Tanzania. While we were initially hoping to find cheetah hunting, we discovered this mom and cubs posed in a beautiful family portrait. It always pays to be open to photographing whatever the moment brings you.
