Prey in sight by darkSoul4Life Prey in sight by darkSoul4Life
One of the two 15 month old male cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus) from the aachener tierpark obviously likes one photographer for breakfast. This cheetah is called Fritzi.

Comments are much appreciated

I usually allow it if I am asked before someone uses my photos. Asking afterwards is very disrespectful and I think you have to learn that you have to respect other people works. If I let you go with this, you'll probably do it again in the future so tell me if there's any reason why I shouldn't say that you have to remove it. If you can tell me a good reason then I think I make an exception and let you have it in your gallery.

wow that's a bit rude :'O I mean she took your drawing as a reference because she loved it, drawing it is a form of admiration of your art. Even though I see your point, you shouldn't be disrespectful yourself and blame her. She told you that she used it and gave you reference. In a way that could make your photo more recognized as well.

Oh, I'm sorry :( I'll have to do that next time. I'm sorry that I seemed disrespectful, I didn't mean any harm by my actions. I'll remove it right away :)

You haven't asked me before but I know about it and are preparing a real spam with quality cheetah photos. I hope my watchers won't hate me for that :XD:

Es ist schön zu hören, dass dir dieses Photo gefällt. Wenn die mal so nah kommen ist es kein Problem mehr einiges an Details mit aufzunehmen, nur ist es dann leider auch nicht mehr möglich die gesamte Katze aufzunehmen ohne sichtbaren Zaun zu haben. Der unscharfe Hintergrund ist auch etwas, was ich mit meiner Powershot nicht hinbekommen würde bei solch großen Tieren.

Thank you so much :) Some small children sometimes draw the attention of these felines, the best opportunity to watch predatory behaviour.

I know what you mean with the eyes. I like what looks the cheetah brothers sometimes give you, a mixture of danger and beauty.
