[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We found this cheetah with 3 cubs late in the afternoon in Londolozi reserve, Sabi sands.
Cheetahs take advantage of everything to look for food!!!
I took this photo with slides fuji and a 300mm plus extender 2x, tripod and beanbag on top (from the open Land Rover).

Hi Luis
Great cat, great pose, great capture, great impact.
You really got lucky with this one. But, what is luck. Gary Player the great SA golfer once said: "The more I practice the luckier I get". I would bet you had enough practice cause your luck is showing.
Very well done and TFS.

Simply Awesome! NG quality shot! TFS!

Very well captured Luis,
Good detail, colours and sharpness.
Composition and exposure are good. Good POV and fantastic pose.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Bem posso me oferecer para carregar as malas na proxima expedição.

Isto está um espectáculo

I don't usually rate two pictures of the same person on the same day but I have to make an exception in this case.
You have the pictures that I hope to have the chance to take. God bless you and keep doing it.
You are great.

Olá Luis! Bela imagem, com cores e nitidez perfeitos! Excelente POV! Ótimo framing!


What a great pose by the Cheetah! Normally they are lying down and not that easy to capture. You have done extremely well here. The Composition, POV, Sharpnes and BG make for an excellent pic indeed. TFS,

Amazing shot Luis!
Cheetah are really elegants cats.
I love it!
