Cuddling Cuties by darkSoul4Life Cuddling Cuties by darkSoul4Life
These are the two 18-month old cheetah brothers. Fritzi is the yawning one and the right one is Hannibal.
Have you known that male cheetahs are sometimes found in groups in the wild? They're mostly brothers but also other male cheetahs might join them. These cheetah groups are usually small having two or three cheetahs but even bigger has been seen with more than 10 cheetahs!

Lets celebrate the International Cheetah Day :D
If you care about these magnificent felines you should support the Cheetah Conservation Fund!
If you like cheetahs, have a look at this folder containing mainly high quality cheetah photos: [link] more cheetah photos will be posted during the day ;)
I'm participating with this photo in the International Cheetah Day Challenge. Follow the link if you would like to know more about it.

Feedback is also highly appreciated Photo 1/17 more are coming during the day

A DD? Wow thank you sooo much guys :D

LOL, this drawing is really cute and funny. I thought they were cubs at first till I really zoomed in on the picture and saw they were full grown, I was like, "Oh. Well, okay then." Lol, but anyway,
I really thought it was cute how the cheeta on the right was all like, cute and cuddly with the cheeta on the left. And I loved how the cheeta on the left looks like he's screaming or laughing his head off. I just. Love this picture.
Ahh... I have to write 100 words.
AWESOME DRAWING RAWR KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

How do you know that I recently did and that I'm waiting for the right time to upload them?
I did some a while before but the limitations of my old equipment haven't allowed me to get something good enough to be posted because it was too dark.

Such cute brothers... :) I meant to draw a picture for the cheetah concervation fund but I never got around to it because of classes getting in the way. Hopefull 'll have time now that I'm on break. Even if it will be really late... :/ Wonderful capture, those two looks super happy together. :) Also, congrats on the DD!!

I love this photo so much! did you add any effects to the photo or was this the original?
Reply
:icondarksoul4life:
darkSoul4Life Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I haven't added any effects. The only things I did is processing the RAW file (which has to be processed if you want a displayable image file;things done: white balance, contrast, exposure, saturation) and removed some distortions of the fence which were visible in the white lights in the background. I also slightly blurred the grass directly in front of the cheetahs by following every culm with a brush (radius of blur was something between 0,3 and 0,5).
