what a picture ! really depicts the rampant and carefreeness of youth in contrast to the tenseness of the mother on guard.
also enjoy the link which allows one to have more background on the nat geo photographers when they are featured.
This is a great picture, but surely there are other "animal" photos that NG has that they don't have to repeat cheetah pictures. We just had one earlier this month.
