Murphy the Cheetah in the rain
and not happy at all!
but had the snow also in the morning so was cold

This is one from my day at WHF in Kent where I was in the enclosure with him
note thankfully not looking my way at the momentWink
but I was only feet away from him and loved every moment

My thanks go to Trev and Bob for your User Awards on the Fishing Cats
and thank you for dropping by.

Sorry not on too much...making a book on these images

Enjoy today, even in this rain!

Lillian

but you don't need to get so aggressive!
Great shot Lillian.

Wow and Wow again Lillian. This is yet another fantastic shot with terrific detail (especially those teeth). I most certainly wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of him. I imagine your book will be superb judging from what you show here on EPZ.
