Cheetah
Copyright ©2008, Tor H. Lanton

May be not "my best" for 2007 - but one of the shots I like the best. Taken in The Central Kalahari - Deception Valley (Botswana) in Janury. About 5:50 in the morning - we were driving through the bush and suddenly this very pregnant cheetah was looking up from her breakfast with blood all over her face!

You really captured the cat in its environment, and it looks like it is licking its chops looking at you...

Thanks Geno and George,

It was quite a magic moment - only lasted for a few seconds before she diaspeared in the bush. The southern Africa is very interesting and I recommend anyone that may get the possibillity - go to Africa with your camera! (Im looking forward to my next trip - dont know when yet but I hope it will not be to long ...!)
