On the lookout

By ColleenA
Good morning....Ok ok I will revert back to Wildlife...
Here is a Cheetah that had come out of the bush onto the track, she was hungry and on the lookout for something to eat. It was late afternoon.
Have a nice day....
We have the start of a cold front arriving that promises icy cold weather. By tomorrow afternoon it would have hit the cape fully. They are warning us of possible floods and snow on the mountains....something to look forward toSadSad

A beauty at unease Colleen, Cheetahs have a hard time but are capable of finding a smaller meal. Always wary of Lion and Hyena.
