The Sleuth

By ColleenA
Hi ...We are back from the Game farm and back to civilization.
A huge Thank you to you all for your votes and comments and the many messages I received while away.
I was chuffed to receive 5 UA's...from Lillian, Dave (Ugly) Carol (Caziwinkles) Harriet and Chistine D. Thank you to you all.

We were fortunate enough to see the Big 5 as well as Cheetah. Our tracker picked up her tracks and it took us a couple of hours of driving around and we eventually found her off road in the long grass. It is so difficult at this time of the year as the animals blend in so well with the grass.
V2 is a close up of her.
Apologies for my lack of voting and comments, I will catch up with all of you in the next two days. Our internet coverage was not good in the bush.

Stunning Colleen - such a beautiful big cat - she looks so relaxed among the long grass - lazily enjoying the sun. Gorgeous.

I love V1 Colleen - a very natural wildlife image, with enough of the cheetah on show
and the light highlighting her head and some of the grass.
Wonderful images Colleen, so looking forward to your next ones...always GrinGrin
