In Kenya's Mara it was a joy to spend time with a world famous cheetah known as Melika and her two cubs. On the second photo tour we were able to witness this family make three hunts (warthogs, gazelle, and hare). Our well- seasoned guides tried to position the vehicles each time ahead of the hunts so we could photograph the cheetahs running toward us. In this case one of the cubs shot off through the wetland, strait at us in pursuit of a hare, which to our amazement got away.
