Good morning....
Thank you for the great votes and comments on my wrinkly elephant and to LynneJoyce for her UA, so chuffed.
This is the penultimate image in the current wildlife series. We are going away tomorrow for 5 days to Namibia for Robs birthday. I hope you have enjoyed them. Another cat today....
We tracked this cheetah early one morning and eventually found him in the open bush. Not great light at dawn. Fortunately he settled down for a bit of a photo shoot. The last version is to show you where we found him.
Have a nice day

Fantastic set Colleen. I think that the cheetah is the nicest looking of the big cats, they have an almost gentle look.

We have no option Lillian, we get woken up by the Tracker at 5.30 am every morning and have 30 minutes to be ready for the drive....a real rude awakening as we leave before first light. It's worth it once you are out in the bush, best part of the day
