Photo of the Week - Cheetah (Kenya)

To me, cheetahs make the most elegant and regal of all the African cats. They are superbly designed for speed with their long sleek body and lengthy tail used like a rudder. Paired with his brother and ever alert, this young male cheetah surveys the Masai Mara bushland.

I also think that cheetah's heads are too small for their body. Great shot!

@martin: I guess their head is smaller but seems Ok to me.

@marina: Cool.

@abhinav: I'd love to see a tiger in the wild. They are majestic animals.

I could only see a cheetah in our zoo here. Unfortunately, it was really difficult to shoot an animal when they are moving around so I think you have done a great job!

@cecil: These two stayed still enough to photograph well. And the light was very bright.
