Here are my first images from last months trip to Kenya. It was nice to see Shakira ( BBC Big Cats fame 2008 ) and her almost fully grown cubs again. The cubs are likely to be chased off by Shakira sometime over the coming months so Kenya 2010 will be a different experience. I was very fortunate to witness a Cheetah kill at short range. It was a breathtaking experience to watch and to record at least some of the action in camera. This year I also spent some time photographing the local villagers and some of the birdlife in the Masai Mara region.
