This time I got a better photo of the King Cheetah as it was more on the move in the enclosure. It was quite scary as when we moved towards the gate I was the last person and the cheetah moved with us and it was not far behind me. My new son in law and a friend was sitting in the lookout when they shouted I must look behind me as the cheetah is following me. Of course I thought they were trying to scare me as this is a totally wild King Cheetah. But they were serious as it was not far behind me. I got quite a scare but nonetheless I got a good photo of it in the open this time and it was worth it.
Hope you enjoy it and comments are welcome.

Hi Natley I always love reading peoples stories. This adds some lovely touch to the presentation! Fantastic capture Natley! The gorgeous posture of the King Cheetah is briliant. Good God that cat is fantastic! As usually I did some work, it is irresistible for me! Please check the result! Have a great week Natley!

What a beautiful animal, beautifully captured. I find that cheetahs love to pose for the camera like this one does. Well done!

You are indeed very privileged Natley. I have yet to see this marvelous creature with it's special markings in nature.
Well captured and nice to get him in the open like this.

fine looking king in good pose and I wish you could have included some more of the trees behind. lovely image. tfs.

Hallo Natley
It seems that you had a wonderful outing the day you daughter got married with lots of photographic opportunities just waiting for you. This was the 2nd year in the Kruger that we missed out on the cheetahs and therefore I am quite green with jealousy to see this beautiful posting of yours. The direct eye contact is great. It is indeed a beautiful image and one you can be proud of with reason. Thanks for sharing. Best regards and lots of love.
