[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a classic cheetah on the termite mound photo. We saw this male cheetah walking towards a temite mound so we went ahead to waited for him. Sure enough he got up to the top to have a look around, so I managed a good shot of him from slightly below eye-level. The don't stay up in the open for long, just enough to scout for prey. This is the same one that went up the tree (I posted the photos last week).

A low point of view is always great for animal shots. You seem to have carried the technique to the extreme. Seems a little risky to me!! I love the pose. It is just a super shot.
