Kalahari the cheetah

Here are the last few cheetah photos that I had flagged for editing from my October / November 2014 project with Wildlife ACT.  It took a few days for our first sighting of Kalahari the cheetah, but I was very lucky to get to spend a fair bit of time in his presence, and learn a bit about his personality.

I’m not sure what will be up next, but I still have quite a few photos from that trip that I would like to share.  Have a great day everyone!

On the move - look at those huge feet!

I included this photo only to show how difficult it can be to spot a cat, even with very little ground cover.  He looked up briefly, watching us watch him, but as soon as he put his head down, you could have walked past and missed him laying there.  I'm pretty sure we drove back and forth a few times before finally catching sight of him.

This was taken around the same time as the black and white conversion I posted earlier in the week, but from a different vantage point.  After watching him from below for some time, we drove up to the road at the top of the dam wall.  To get home we had no choice but to drive past him fairly close; we went slowly and quietly, and it gave us some lovely views :)
