This cheetah, (Acinonyx Jubatus) ,observed in the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, Africa, had recently finished a kill and a meal. A splatter of blood from the prey on its shoulder, it seemed to be posing for the camera. These cats can run up to 75 mph for short bursts up to 1600 feet, and like a sports car, can accelerate from zero to sixty mph in 3 seconds.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
