Spitting Mad

By Lillian  
This is Murphy..the loveable Cheetah from WHF in Kent

This young man was sent over from Ireland for
the breeding program at WHF...only to find that after ''health checks''
he is a sterile CheetahSmile but they are doing their best to find out why?
You have to smile though and he really is a magnificent animal

Thank You Ann for your User Award yesterday on the Snow Leopard
and thank you for stopping by and making a comment always appreciated

Remember photography is a way of expressing yourself
what you like and see... may not be what others want, but be true
to yourself show what you have taken, because you had a reason to take that photo in the first place!
All rules in photography are there to be 'bent'
And remember, life is too short...get out and get that image that has been eluding you!!
You know you want to

Thank you grateful and for the User Awards..Wow!! thank you again
Those words Ann are especially for someone on here who has
been feeling 'low' due to some comments....
we are supposed to enjoy our photography and learn from others
not openly be criticized, use the PM system to offer help??
It costs nothing to be nice to each otherSmile

OH Lillian,I do not think Murphy will be too happy with you spilling the beans about his news !!
I am sure he would write you a stern letter of complaint,but with his luck,the ink would run out before he finished it !!
Good shot.
