This is a great picture of four cheetah brothers crossing a fast moving and swollen river in the Massai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. They hate it!
The photograph is one of a series of five cheetahs who were compelled to take a risk and cross this dangerous river infested with crocodiles.
By the expression on their faces we know they hated the experience. I have never seen cheetahs with expressions like these. They often have soft, gentle faces. They remind me of domestic cats getting wet after falling into water. Like all cats, domestic or wild, the cheetah is an effective swimmer.
The photographic series was taken by photographers Arnfinn Johansen and Buddhilini De Soyza. The two on this page are by Buddhilini De Soyza. The story is on the Bored Panda website.
