[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Shakira the Cheetah star of the BBC's Big cat Live series.
Seen here with two of her remaining three cubs, originaly she had five but during filming two were lost to predation.

I originally posted this picture to another website but it was stolen by the Sun newspaper and used in a center spread article on the Cheetah. I am still chasing payment!!!

Hello Lyndon,
What a nice scene. The poses of animals are perfect. Good sharpness and colours. I like the blured background.
