Snowy Portrait by darkSoul4Life Snowy Portrait by darkSoul4Life
Fritzi doesn't look amused but the two cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus) actually somehow enjoyed the snow, they played more than the time before the snow.

Haha, der Blick ist ja wirklich Gold wert :D Mal wieder ein tolles Foto, die beiden sind sehr fotogen.
Ich habs tatsächlich letzte Woche mal wieder in den Aachener Tierparkt geschafft. Schön, wie sie alles umgebaut haben bei den Affen. Und wir hatten sogar das Glück, dass die Geparden direkt vorne am Zaun gelegen und sich gelegentlich rumgerollt haben, sehr beeindruckende Tiere :)

Hast du den irgendwie angewunken? Is ja schon fast furchteinflößend wie direkt der in die Kamera sieht. ^^

Vielen lieben Dank. Er guckt ziemlich oft so schön rüber, da lohnt es sich jedes Mal ein paar Stunden mit den zwei Gepardenbrüder zu verbringen.
Viel Spaß dabei, aber schütze deine Kamera vor den Schnee, der macht Kameras genauso gerne kaputt wie Regen.

Gorgeous work, love the colour contrast, the snow flakes clinging to the fur and that hilarious expression :giggle:

This is so beautiful. You would think that as a cat of the savannah, the cheetah would look out of place in a wintery scene such as thing. But it looks gorgeous and eerily at home in the the snow. This is a wonderful, wonderful picture!

Thank you very much. It impressed me that these cheetahs were playing in the snow as if it weren't there but they don't look there as if they were at home because they're not camouflaged anymore.
