Relaxed Portrait

Relaxed Portrait

I came across this male Cheetah at the San Diego Zoo yesterday.

The image I posted below in my PaD Gallery yesterday, caused some confusion and misinterpretations.
I don't usually add explanations to my images, but in this case I will.
Some thought the trainer and Cheetah were ill at ease, but that was only because my timing was off.
She had just gotten him to jump on the bench in order to pose for me, so I could get some close-ups.
Believe me, everyone was relaxed the Cheetah, the trainer and even me.

other sizes: small medium original

He's a beauty. I'm not sure I'd want to train wild cats but he seems well behaved here. Lovely capture. V.

He looks so handsome and healthy! An incredible experience, just like a family pet, Walter! V
My bet is that cheetah has very tender character.
