I see the Safari Jeep! Great shot. With that long reach, IS and a great subject, you have planned this well and execution is formidable!

But these are very dangerous eating machines

What is amazing is the fact that a tourtist couple in a Dutch park safari actually got out to check the wild animals with taking their little bumpkins with, including an infant in arms! It was if they thought the loung cheetahs were actually cute kittens!

Suddenly the Cheetah ran towards them and grouped for attack on their new prey!

The cheetahs inspected and fortunately, (they know they have no emergency hospitals for themselves), so they have to first carefully do a disciplined "preflight check", to assess their new prey and not risk self-injury, and that extra 25 seconds got the humans back to safety.

What an amazing photograph Gordon ! Remarkable detail.
You almost got a flea or a tick... in fact it looks like some kind of bug on top middle towards left... :)

I have been that clip Asher posted. Crazy people ! Hope they learned the lesson once for all.

You would make a great forensic scientists, Antonio! That was very good attention to detail.

You did far better than I did, but now you point it out, its obvious!

I have seen that clip as well Asher. We have been extremely lucky to have travelled to many locations around the world to photograph these beautiful and wild animals.
I am currently planning a trip to Sri Lanka to photograph Leopards in the wild.
