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.
