[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cheetah at rest

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is an a typical member of the cat family (Felidae) that is unique in its speed, while lacking climbing abilities. As such, it is placed in its own genus, Acinonyx. It is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 and 123 km/h (70 and 76 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 460 m (1,500 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 110 km/h (68 mph) in three seconds, greater than most cars.

Hi Tom,

Nice pose and detail on this cheetah, Good timing to catch the tail up and the mouth slightly open as if it is panting after a run.


Nicely done, Tom.
No unsettling reading at all:-)
Very good focus and depth of field. The moment is absolutely great. I do like the natural colours, contrast,...
Well done!
