Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 31, 2011
Again as part of my 4 weeks photography volunteer program in South Africa. We spent a lot of time following and tracking the cheetah’s. This was during a cold day on the end of our safari drive when we got a sight of the two males. I just love the look he has, not caring there’s a jeep truck with volunteers watching him, but him watching out in the distance for his next meal. A volunteer friend lent me his 150-500mm Sigma lens for me to take this shot. One thing I learnt being in the wild, you absolutely mut have, at least, a 200mm lens..
