Hello Karl,
It's not one of the big five but certainly one you want to see in Kruger 'cause there aren't many. Kruger isn't exactly cheetah land in my opinion. At least it wasn't in 2007. I couldn't spot one let alone photograph back then. Hopefully their number has increased since then.
Anyway you managed to photograph one!
This adult (I guess) seems to be in a perfect condition. Thanks for sharing this beautiful animal.

very nice picture this is !!
great portrait

Hi Karl, this handsome bloke looks like he's a bit surprised to be your subject. Amazing the personality you've captured. Beautiful sharpness and of course that shallow DOF is just superb. Congrats, I hope you were a long. LONG way away from him :) Cheers, Lisa
