In Kenya, we saw quite a few Cheetah, including some families with very young cubs. The savanna’s tall grass provides excellent cover for young Cheetahs as the color of their fur and their spots blend well with the grass to provide good camouflage for them. In the case of this young Cheetah, our Land Cruiser almost ran over it because it was so well hidden.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF70-200mm f/4L IS lens + 1.4x tele-extender, 1/160 sec at f/10, ISO 400 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.
