Wohaa ... great close up... I didn't know that there where any cheetahs in South Africa, I missed them.
Great definition, the picture is very sharp and colors are great.

Spectacular picture... What are this guys of National Geografic doing? I hope they were phoning you right now to publish this photo. I like you´ve got time enough to reach the close-up. It woudnt work as well in other kind of shot. Congratulations from Madrid.

Great catch Steve. Focus, DOf and framing are on the money and what can I say about your good fortune in catching when mama was away.

Wonderful, sharp, and an expression that did not need too much literature to be undertood. Still, Beauty IN the Beast!

You did indeed shot at the perfect decisive moment.
Really sharp image & great expression.
He looks like a little mean gargoyle.
