I am Predator by darkSoul4Life I am Predator by darkSoul4Life
Cheetahs are the fastest land animals and are also some pretty large cats but they're not very dangerous for humans compared to the other bigger felines however you shouldn't annoy them because they still can be very dangerous and you can't outrun them.

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 3/17 more are coming during the day

Critique by Harmony-Bender Dec 8, 2012, 11:21:01 AM
I love the facial expression. It seems to me he is like he is doing some kind of evil laugh because he knows something you don't. The detail on this photo is exceptional. I love how the grass in front of him also has a lot of detail. A lot of details on this cheetah are very striking like his facial expression and his eyes. Over all I give this photo a 4.8/5 stars. Only subtraction if that you see a lot of cheetah photos but the pose and everything else adds originality to the whole photo. Great job on this, superb!!
What do you think?

Although I know that he's probably just yawning, that makes for an excellent, and I do mean excellent shot!!!! Wow! How do you manage such superb cheetah shots? Even though we have glass and open air, you still have difficulties. They like to stalk past the glass and the open air portion you have to a mega big zoom to get a photo of this quality because they are simply too far away. I have a 300 zoom and still can't do it. Now if they would be so kind as to just plant themselves right in front of the glass for me....**sigh***...anyway, if you can't tell by now....I love this shot!!!!

Thank you so much, I'm glad you like this capture. I just had 300mm as well but I crop to replace missing focal length. I would have needed about 500mm to get that capture without taking a crop.
