ABOUT "THE HUNT"
One of Kweli's cubs follows Kweli as she heads off to hunt at sunset.
Evening is the worst time for Kweli and her cubs to be hunting. They lose a lot of kills to Hyena, and with lions becoming more active around this time too, it makes holding onto the kill even more challenging. Having been unsuccessful the past two days, Kweli has no choice but to keep up the hunt.
I saw Kweli regularly during the month I spent photographing in the Maasai Mara. This photo was taken during a three day stint that I spent almost exclusively following Kweli and her cubs, aiming to capture a series of photographs that encapsulate the spirit of her dedication to her cubs.
