Going to the run by darkSoul4Life Going to the run by darkSoul4Life



Today, the forth december, is a special day dedicated to the cheetahs. Cheetahs, like many other animal species, are moving more and more towards extinction so we have this special day to raise awareness. You can help if you spread the word and maybe support organizations who help them, like the Cheetah Conservation Fund

Join us and participate as well in the International Cheetah Day (Challenge). Also have a look at that journal for further information about how you can help.

Great shot.

I can't help but wonder about the cause of the bloodspot on the forehead.

Thank you very much. Looks like you are the first one who noticed it. I thought it's hard to not see it.
This cheetah cub managed to get a long deep cut on his forehead. The zookeepers had searched the enclosure for anything that might have caused it because claws wouldn't make such an even cut but they couldn't find anything. The wound was stitched but this little one managed to open it again after a while. I probably have chosen the best day to travel that far to visit that zoo the first time. The vet came and put this little one on anesthetics to stitch the cut again. After he woke up, I had the chance to see the most clumsy cub I've ever seen.

That's a very nice picture. And so sharp, even though the cat is running. Well done.

Thank you a lot. It's not that difficult to get running cheetahs sharp except if they're running directly towards you.

Man kann auch nicht alle Zoos schaffen, dafür gibt es alleine in NRW schon zu viele. Ein paar habe ich auch noch vor mir ;)

The heck with Nikon and the money for them...that Canon equipment is some of the best in the world and the service and support they have nobody can come close to beating.
This is one of the best images I've ever seen it's so good. Almost 3D effect it's so alive.
