“The only way you can be the best at something is to be the best you can be.”
― Susan Beth Pfeffer, Life As We Knew It
Whilst I was experimenting with the new cam that my husband gifted me, we went on a safari vacation to Kenya. I went shutter crazy at all the wonderful shots of nature in the range of my lens and took tons of clicks, experimenting with various camera settings. After the vacation, friends and acquaintances wanted to know what all we’d done, “Did you see the Big Five?”, “How close did you get to the Lions?”, “Are the Buffalo really that dangerous…they look soooo harmless?”, “Did you really stay in tents?! What about plumbing?!”
I showed everyone many of the shots we had taken, including an incredible video of a pride of lions feeding!( a story for another time…). Curiously, the shot that was an instant favourite wasn’t of the big five, but this one… of a beautiful female Cheetah.

That really is a beautiful photograph, the Cheetah almost seems human like in her expression. Distant. Pensive almost.
Thanks! She did seems aloof….superior to us mere mortals, who were awed by her regal bearing. Appreciate you dropping by.
No problem! 🙂 and yep, her majesty is beyond us.
What a terrific story and a beautiful capture of a gorgeous animal. A wonderful beginning indeed!
Thanks Tina! Appreciate the kind words…

Beautiful capture of the Cheetah. I have always wanted to go on Safari. I have always been mesmerized by the wild big cats all of them.
Thank you so much! The Cheetah is my fav animal….though I too an mesmerised with the big cats…lions, tigers, leopards!
I love your voice, your spirit and your photography is stunning.
Thanks for the visit and the kind words! I am just learning and sharing that’s all…
