Earlier I posted a few Cheetah images this is the last one in the series. I took this as she stood and looked through the gap in the bushes before moving off into thicker bush. Although not a typical Cheetah portrait of the animal looking straight at the camera. To me its shows her searching for prey or another Cheetah.

not a typical Cheetah portrait I agree; but that can make things intresting, do you not agree?
I have never been that near to a Cheetah; but if I did, I would like it facing away from me, just in case it got me. lol
My only issue is the branches in front of him, but it would take a brave man to move in closer to move them. Perhaps a bit of PP might do the trick.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi John, many thanks for the comments. I did think about removing the branches several times but decided against it because I think they give a "don't touch" feeling to the animal and that she can't turn back and has to go through the gap in the bush.
I agree, we see a lot of portrait (face) shots of animals and it's good to look for something different in composition, some of the more interesting wildlife pictures I've seen are animals walking away from camera.
