    Cheetahs are one of my favorite animals, although I have never seen one “live”. This is close to my favorite of all the images I have seen. It’s simply stunning, Alan! The lighting is perfect, and I just love the way the background highlights all the little tufts of fur! Excellent, Alan! A fave of course!

  • your comment is perfect too Mary!!so pleased you like it so much, thank you

    Such a sweet looking little one…not so cuddly all grown up, though!

  • the adult ones are reasonably tame as long as they know you, the zoo director goes in every day and lets them run after him for the visitors entertainment!!thanks Laurie!1
