Young cheetah

Finally I managed to get close to one of the young Cheetahs.
It took some days and some hours to manage to be 'accepted' by the mother. Usually the young one played around 6 AM and then went to sleep. This one was in between and I came close to him using the 'cat' approach i.e. blinking eyes. At the end this is one of the capture I got.

Hello Michel,
Remarkable capture of a lovely young cheetah. Outstanding composition, sharpness and fantastic details. Perfect WB and exposure. The contrast against the background is very nice. Outstanding clarity and good details. A lovely portrait.

Hallo Michel
Stunning details captured on the face of this young cheetah. I just love the innocent expression on its face and the feeling of softness that surrounds it. Thanks for sharing a great portrait. Best regards.
