[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Outsite the Etosha National Game Park is a cheeta farm. The rangers there also have a cheeta park. In the park are 30 cheeta's. Every day they become food from the rangers. We get in the cargo-space of a truck with a barrel of meat to feed them.
After a short time a couple of cheeta's followed the car from a distance. Soon after there were more. We stopped the truck and throwed the meat as far as possible from the truck on the ground. Some cheeta's began to fight for a piece of meat.
This is one of the photo's I take.
It's a scanned slide.

Bonjour Peter,
De superbes attitudes ! Je n'ai pas eu la chance de voir ces félins lors de mon voyage en Namibie mais je ne désespère pas... Une belle prise de vue dont vous pouvez être fier. Bravo.
Bonne année 2007 pleine de joie, de bonheur et d'amour.

I've been in the same place this summer.
It's amazing.
Excellent shot, nice moment captured.

Ps. There was a big internet connection problem to TN in two last days. Therefore it is not easy to write comment/critique:(

Hello Peter

Great action shot, with their fight pose,
the way diagonally they are framed in the
image it gives great dynamism to the photo, TFS
