[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
as there is some interests in seeing a cheetah on a tree I am posting another shot which include more of the tree to give you an idea how high it was. On the left of the tree trunk is a small shrub, not something that can be used to help it up the tree. So if you were chased by a cheetah maybe you should jump in the water instead of climbibg a tree!

Hi Sitthivet,

You are lucky to get a chance to take photos of a cheetah. The interest is mainly due to their scarceness. Interesting to see how high he was. TFS


Dear Sitthivet
What an interesting photograph and scene you share with us. I have also never heard of cheetahs in trees and here you proof it to us. I think many photographers will love to take such a photograph of a cheetah in this position. The spots on the fur shows nicely, even if the cheetah is not so close by. Even high up in a tree this remains a beautiful and majestic animal. I see the photo was taken in South Africa but you are from Thailand. Where you touring the country at the time this photo was taken? Thanks for sharing and congratulations for spotting this one.
Kind regards
Aaltjie and Hettie

Great shot Sitthivet.

If you look closely to the left, there is branch that looks like a snake. maybe he got scared, and tried to run away :)

How far where you from him when you took the photo ??
