Me and my shadow

By ColleenA
Good morning....
An amazing response to my Oxpeckers yesterday, thank you so much ......I promise to give V6 and 7 their own upload soon.
Also like to thank John (JohnoP), Christine (ChristineD), Dave (Mistere) for their UA's.... and lastly Andysnapper for his "Imaginary diamond and gold encrusted UA" an unusual award which I will treasure with the others.GrinGrin

Today the mighty cheetah on the hunt (with her shadow)....we were fortunate enough to find her on the dirt track stalking impala.
Have a nice SaturdayGrin

A beautiful creature and two excellent photographs Colleen. Amazing that she was still on the trail of her prey with onlookers around.

Yes sometimes they are so focused that they do not worry about us, you can see by my focal length how close we were...we sometimes get to see them kill....not one of my favourite pastimes to see them choking their prey to death...

Super images Colleen,
Great pair of images Colleen, glad you got one with a shadow, we don't have much sun here at the moment so shadows are in short supply.

How much you paid these animals to pose to you so well? I prefer V1 ( according to the title - V2 hasn't shadow)

What a wonderful experience seeing this big cat in a natural setting and then capture these fine images: V 1 must take a lot os beating.......shows off the fine elegance of this handsome animal.
Stunning images, Colleen. Both images exemplify the cheetah's great camouflage in the bush.
