On safari in Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau region this past February, we came upon three cheetah siblings feasting on a kill under a shady acacia. Afterward, they took turns licking each other clean, and I was able to capture this intimate moment from just a few feet away.

Location: Laikipia Plateau, Kenya
