Still Learning To See

The grace of the cheetah

I can still remember women wearing coats of leopard and cheetah fur when I was a kid. Oh my! To think that the relatives of this lovely creature that might have ended up in such a predicament.

Alive and in their environment they are pure grace.

  1. I love the “cheetah at home”–the picture makes it so clear THAT is where s/he belongs.

    These are wonderful shots. You must have felt like a big game National Geographic photographer out there. Hope you put together a book sometime.

    Take care and keep the photos coming.
