Eyes of fire
Cheetahs are abundant on the plains of the Serengeti, where they often prey on wildebeest. A cheetah hunt is always touch-and-go – the cats rely on a short, sharp burst of speed to bring down their prey. It’s an exhausting business and their meal is often stolen by burlier animals like lions and hyenas. Marlon followed this particular hunt from beginning to end. You can see the intensity and fatigue in the cheetah’s fiery eyes as it desperately tries to subdue the wildebeest.
