Calling Mom

We spotted this cheetah in the early evening, and followed it until it got dark. The cheetah kept calling, and at first we thought it was a mother calling her cubs. After a few minutes, we saw that it was actually a young boy, that probably just left his mom, and he kept calling her. The next day, we saw him again, calling her... It was a sad moment but part of nature... Taken in Masai Mara, Kenya
