For Paul. The Three Musketeers, armed with 2 Canon and 1 Nikon DSRL’s set off on a cheetah hunt this afternoon at the De Wildt Cheetah Institute near Hartbeespoort in North West. Japie arranged it, & Gerhard & I traipsed along. I shoot again too many pictures, but who can resist? I liked this one the most of all the pictures I took, and looks forward to see what my fellow hunters will bring to the TN tribe as trophies! Let the picture speak, I have written enough on cheetahs. Hope you like it too. I was the nearest to him so most probably it was the old guy he had something against.
