[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is shot of a young Cheetah male that I took last year in the Mountain Zebra National park near Cradock, South Africa.This is a substantial crop as the rest of his body was obsructed by smaller thornbush.

Hi Frans,

Wonderful capture here. Expression is priceless. The eye's reflections so telling of the mind's eye. The light is absolutely right & brings out colors so rich & exclusive of nature's fauna.

A real beauty!

A striking and beautiful portrait of this young Cheetah. The eyes are mesmerizing.

Fine detail and sharpness.



Bonjour Frans,
Très beau portrait remarquablement restitué.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Nice shot! I am trying to see what is reflected in the eyes!

Hello Frans,
A fabulous photo with great intensity. The eyes are beautiful and so are the other facial features.
