    Cheetah

    Early morning and this female emerged from cover to cross an open area of grass. The low sun highlights her powerful chest and shoulders. I love the intense look on her face and the characteristic black “tear-drop” marking is clearly seen. The plain grass background made the cheetah stand out.
    C&C welcomed.

    Clive, very nice shot. I love the detail. The intensity that this cat shows is almost identical to the mountain lions here in Wyoming. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely shot, I like it, maybe if you could blend in the slight bright spot under her neck.
    Best Wishes Pat.

    Hi Clive. What a treat to see such a beautiful cheetah. I grew up in Zimbabwe and was in Botswana a couple of years ago - Okavango, Moremi and Chobe and whilst we saw an abundance of wildlife including lion and close range and a leopard in the middle distance, we didn't see a cheetah. If you don't mind me asking, what part of Botswana was this taken? Kim

    Hi All, many thanks for the positive comments and time taken to view.
    Hi Kim, I'm also an ex-Zim from Bulawayo but been in Botswana for ten years now. This image was taken in the Tuli Block in the Mashatu area, a really unique place.
