Hi....the cheetah's are out at Chester zoo.

I believe there are more still in quarantine so that's still to look foreward to:
The two currently on show are very young and active...not yet suffering from apathy.

In view of the low barrier, the opportunity exists to take excellent shots of the two young cheetah's.

Take advantage of the good viewing while you can because eventually it will be wire mesh all round.

Thanks for looking at my first attempt....more to follow.

...stay lucky....Mike

So where's the low barrier? I think I must have gone around with my eyes closed. I had to take my Cheethar pics from above, so couldn't get any eye level shots, must have another look next time I visit.
Chester Zoo have 5 Cheethars, but sadly 2 were not well enough to travel, so will be arriving later.
I love your composition, getting him on the log is just great, all they were doing when I visited was sitting around!
