A few Cheetah shots plus one I don't know!

It is always difficult to capture good shots of animals in captivity - especially when there are fences and posts and wire mesh that all get in the way. I couldn't do anything to avoid the fence in the two Cheetah shots, but I was pleased with the way they turned out.

All shots taken with the Oly E5 and 70-300 lens.

Cheetah in the snow!


Cheetah - this one was pacing up and down the path wanting to get to the Cheetah in the first shot!!



Not sure what this little beastie is but he/she popped up really close to my car window and frightened the life out of us!

Thanks John

They were all taken (and the Tiger one I posted recently) at West Midlands Safari Park! It's a pretty decent place if I am honest, well worth a trip.

The expressions of those two cheetahs, especially the first one, are priceless!

Re: A few Cheetah shots plus one I don't know!

Very nice John and for me no1 is the best, though I would run the content aware brush down the gaps in the fencing to reduce the effect of the fence.

With barriers and unnatural backgrounds Zoo shoots can be frustrating, John. Yet you have managed those well.

Can understand why the Cheetah looks fed up, little bit colder than his home climate

The last one looks like a young Roe Deer.

Happy to be corrected , but I think your last shot is a Sika Deer.

The deer is a snack for whichever big cat gets it first.
