cheetah near waterberg plateu

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is an atypical 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 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph)[3] 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 supercars.

The word "cheetah" is derived from the Sanskrit word chitrakāya, meaning "variegated body", via the Hindi

Hello Catia,
Outstanding portrait with great focus on those beautiful eyes, thank you.

Hi Catia
I appreciate the way she turns her head to face you
Extremely sharp also
I would just suggest that you try a little bit more color saturation It looks a little faded
