Top Shot: In Pursuit of Love | Photograph by Clement Kiragu (@clement.wild)
“This was the day that my favorite cheetah named "Malaika” (which means Angel in Swahili) had five suitors,“ writes #YourShotPhotographer Clement Kiragu. "She fought them for a whole 24 hours as she wasn’t ready to mate. It was my first time witnessing five male cheetahs going for one female. It was a day filled with action and suspense. Definitely a day I will never forget.”
