Just love that one peeking round the corner! A most excellent composition & capture. The tree trunk or rock, whichever it is, makes a wonderful Lion head itself.

There looks to be a face in the tree that one of them is resting under, it seems to be watching you.
They look very relaxed in this capture Sandy.

Excellent well-togged capture of two sleek Cheetahs, 'living the good life,' Sandy, in a secluded spot, 'all of their own.' Well done.

Lovely to see them relaxed in the sunlight. The ones at my local zoo were looking a bit fed up with the weather when I saw them last week.

Beautiful animals - and didn't see the one to the rear at first and he is so clear with those beautiful eyes shown to perfection. The log (?) fascinates me too - looks like a sculpture of an animal!

So wonderful to capture them together resting Sandy, One way to remember Cheetahs is they have dark marks from their eyes as if they are crying.
Well shot
