Excellent detail, composition & expression on the Cheetah's face! #1304681

You did a beautiful job with that lens, Gary. The composition is fantastic too! #8881130

Thank you Karen and Michelle!! I like the comp in this shot too. The rocks frame the Cheetah and make a nice pillow for its head! #8881268

Nice shot Gary! The zoo cats aren't always so alert (i.e., often asleep!). #8883637

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
