Beautiful Cheetah from the Cat Sanctuary in Kent

Versions with myself inside his enclosures:
Such a privilege, as went into many of the different animal enclosures
that was allowed with the keeper. also stayed in an overnight lodge

Again back on Hard drive, searching for a photo for friend
but so enjoying, also reprocessing again

Hope you will enjoy this mini series from there

Wonderful to see, Lillian. Terrific lead image. Looks like you both got on well in the versions, that was fortunate! 😀. John Lifesnapper above says the Cheetah was brave, I would have thought you were the brave one, or had he just been fed? 😀

A super portrait in your lead image, but also a joy to see you in the enclosure with the cheetah.
The nearest I get to a big cat is the pictures on my walls and my animal-print dressing gownSadSadSad!

A lovely portrait I came face to face with a cheetah in the African bush early one morning when we had stopped for a coffee break. I was about to get my camera off the seat in the open Land Cruiser and as I walked around the vehicle there was a curious cheetah a metre in front of me. Im not sure who got the biggest fright but my scream sent her scurrying into the bush lol
