Interrupted Meal

Hi all…so its the beginning of another week and the Kalahari is still celebrating the greenery around. Birds are chirping happily because of the abundance of bugs around. Antelope are looking healthy and satisfied from munching on the new grass shoots and the predators are pleased with all of the above. This photograph I am sharing with you today is of one of the park’s cheetahs that is busy finishing off a Springbok fawn kill. Cheetahs never cease to amaze me. They look so skinny,¬†sleek¬†and delicate but are actually incredibly skilled, super fast and agile hunters. They are always tuned in to what is happening in the bush around them. What I like most about this picture is the eye-contact from this beautiful cat and the contrast it has with the ‘almost’ solid-green background. This poor little Springbok fawn didn’t have a chance of getting away this time. It was taken with my Nikon D3s and Nikon 600mm F4.

Take a look and let me know what you think…

Cheers til tomorrow.
