[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Samburu nature reserv, afternoon, I arived few moments after the kill of an Impala by 2 male Cheetas. I couldn't leav the road, and didn't want to disterb, so I had only one possible angle between 2 bushes.

Great action shot. When I get to action like this I invariably screw it up.
Well done, good shot.

Good genuine wild action capture capture.

Great shot Eyal.
This the real life of nature.
Nice composition and goo details.
Well done.

Well done on capturing this action scene. I didn't know male cheetah teamed up together.Were they father and son perhaps?

In your note you said that this picture was taken between 2 bushes, but I had to look carefully to see them. You were able to get them to be as much out of focus as the BG, making the FG and BG almost melt together. Nice job "catching" this action.

Classic !

Great action shot! Well seen and taken.

Oh...very cool shot! I feel like I am watching a documentary on TV...this is quite a capture and I am pea green with envy as I sure would love to see these creatures in the wild doing their thing!

Good action shot. Great capture of a wildlife moment. Under the circumstances, you managed a very well taken picture.

Great shot! True African colors and action in this picture. Well done!

Eyal, To borrow the slogan from coca-cola, it's the "real" thing!:-) Thanx for this great moment from the "hunt"..

Excelente y fuerte retrato de la naturaleza.
Gran captura por su oportunismo y POV.
Personalmente me agradarķa el cuadro un poco mas amplio a la izquierda de la imagen.

Excellent and strong portrait of the nature.
Great capture by its opportunism and POV.
Personally I would please to the picture a little to me but ample to the left of the image.
