[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We found this family late in the afternoon in Londolozi game reserve, South Africa.
The mother was very aware of a group of gazeles near by.
I was shooting from an open veicule so I used a beanbag over the tripod, for better manuverability!!!

Hi Luis,
Beautiful shot, that seems to actually take the viewer to the spot. Colours are just great and the composition spot-on.

Lovely shot of the cheetah family! The grass in the front gives it a special effect: as if you had advanced on the ground...

Hi Luis

Really good shot of a beautiful family scene.
The mother is very alert and there is a real atmosphere in this photo.
Excellent shot.
