On the lookout for a meal, this incredibly beautiful cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)was on a high point overlooking a large open plain. My favorite cheetah sighting, it allowed me the priviledge of sharing it’s space for about 20 minutes, all the while keen and aware of it’s surroundings, alert and primed to take advantage of the opportunity for a meal that might present itself.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
