Photo of the Week: Maternal Bond

Cheetah mother and cub

For Mother’s Day, we present this moment of affection between a cheetah and her cub. Lisa Hoffner photographed the scene while on safari in the Masai Mara Nature Preserve in Kenya. She wrote, “It was rewarding to witness the bond between mother and baby as they gently groomed each other.” The California resident used a Canon 40D camera.
