Cheetah

1/21/12

This was another phenomenal find in my opinion. These are soltary cats. I had seen one a few days before in the Ngorongora crater. It was the size of a dot in my image and the shy cat kept hidden among the grass. Here we drove up. This guy sat and posed. He didn’t run. He wasn’t protecting a kill. What luck!!

  4. Love this shot—the selective focus, leaving the background nicely subdued, and the off-center position. Beautiful.
