Helpless

The photo depicts a young cheetah cub captured at the Mystic Monkeys Reserve in Limpopo, South Africa. The enclosure is small and restricting for this wild creature. The helplessness and sadness is captured in the cub's dark eyes. This picture evokes feelings of pity and melancholy. One feels the need to help such a young, helpless creature.
