[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
here is a cheetah sitting on top of a head high termite mound in Kruger NP. They don't stay exposed for very long, so the thing to do when you see a cheetah is to look upwind for the next termite mound and go ahead and wait for it there. They like to get on top of a high ground to have a look around then stalk around in the grass invisible for most of the time.

What a catch, Sitthivet.
This is a gorgeous capture of this beautiful cheetah.
A great pose and excellent eye contact.
The image seems a bit bright on my screen,
but the details are very sharp.
