Awwwww . . . . . . OOPS!

How cute is this story from the Daily Mail: "Three cheetahs spare tiny antelope's life... and play with him instead." The story includes four wonderful photographs by Michel & Christine Denis-Huot, like this one:

The story begins,
Hello little antelope, would you like to play with us?

Coming from three deadly cheetahs, it's the kind of invitation that's best refused - but amazingly, this impala escaped unscathed from its encounter.

Luckily for the youngster, it seems these three male cheetahs simply weren't hungry.
As it turns out, the four photographs used for the story were part of a series of 14 taken of these adorable young cheetahs in Kenya's Masai Mara game reserve.

All 14 photographs are online at a website called "BiosPhoto." You can see all 14 HERE. But, to save you the trouble, here's the last one (click to enlarge):

So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river.
