Two Cheetahs surveying the landscape at the Serengeti National Park is one among a series of stunning images captured by photographers for National Geographic in a collection created for Big Cat Week.
“Every photographer has a special moment in the field that stays with them forever. For those lucky enough to work with wild cats, that snapshot in time can be even more amazing. “
This National Geographic article features the work of six photographers and their stories from around the world. In this one, a regal Bengal tigress is caught in a quiet moment with her cub.
And a mother Lynx cares for her kitten in Southern Colorado. To see the rest of the photographs and read the stories, visit National Geographic News online.
