[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cheetahs are mostly preying on small antelopes and Gazelles but sometimes they are hunting in a small group (2 or 3 brothers or mother with almost adult daughters), then they are able to kill adult Wildebeest.
We arrived at this kill when hunting was over already, it was a young Gnu and the mother stood some 50 meters away looking at the scene, later we saw that she was hurt at one leg and could hardly walk.

Hello Tom
nice view of these cheetah feeding. I like the graphical effect of the grey grasses and the soft pestel rendition of the surroundings.
The cheetah stood out well on the canvas and its so clear.
Well composed view.


Hello Tom,
Brilliant capture of a very interesting and nice species. Lovely natural colors, good details and sharpness. The focus and WB is at the highest quality range. Excellent moment.....
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Tom

Excellent capture of a moment from the life
& death action in the Africa Savanna, TFS


Bonjour Tom,
Encore une bonne scène de la vraie vie.
On ne voit pas grand-chose du guépard couché, mais son frère est suffisamment expressif pour donner une bonne intensité dramatique à l'image. Ses yeux sont vraiment magnétiques.
Bonne composition aussi. Philippe.

Hello Tom,
great capture of these cheetah eating their prey after the hunting. Perfect sharpness on the right cheetah, natural colours and the splendid light makes this one an outstanding picture.
Best wishes,

Bonjour Tom,

A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
