I was driving in Kruger and I knew that some Spotted hyenas had their den under the road where they were sleeping and hiding. That was giving the opportunity to lots of people to spot them close to the road.

At some point one of the young ones got closed and started sniffing the mother till she moved her head giving me the possibility to take this picture. The thing I like most is the protection and the love that the mother is showing to her little one and he looks like he is listening and take example from the mother.
