Great portrait of this amazing cat.

Japie, A superb shot! You hit the jackpot on this portrait I think. A sweet shot with the cheetah embraced by the golden tones of the dried grass. Excellent pose with a very opportune head turn/perspective including the chest & upper torso as well. A majestic predator captured in perfect form! A great post!!

Couldn't be more perfect.100% Jolly good Japie!

Otra hemosa presentacion de estos imponentes felinos.
Buen POV con agradable colorido y un foco levemente soft, pero que le brinda una atmósfera especial a la imagen.
El color de las hierbas demuestra el nivel de mimetismo que logra este animal cuando lo necesita.

Another beautiful presentation of these imposing felines.
Good colorful with pleasant POV and focus slightly soft, but that offers a special atmosphere him to the image.
The color of the grass demonstrates the mimicry level that east animal obtains when it needs it.

It's gorgeous Japie, very nice. For me I would crop off the left and top and maybe sharpen a little. I have done a WS to show you - I hope you don't mind.

very serious shot with serious actor!

Well done. We had to pay our driver extra to get him to take us to see these beautiful creatures. Even then we couldn't get a clear shot since the few we found were in some dense trees.

This is wonderful. Truly wonderful.

Great colours, and teeth. Thanks.

Superb shot. The natural surroundings add to this shot immensely.
