Do you really think  I am afraid of You by PictureByPali Do you really think  I am afraid of You by PictureByPali
The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)

To read more about this feline pls see [link]

This picture was taken at Parken Zoo Eskilstuna in Sweden With a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 70-200 F 2.8 Lens

The picture was taken through glass....

This cheetah just walked up to the glass wall and sat down and looked at me just like to prove to him self that he was not afraid of me.... This is like the first time i get a good capture of a cheetah... i really hope you like it!!!

Pls comment on what´s is good and bad so i can become better until next time ill try to take picture of the Sand Cat

If you like pictures of Wolves; Lynx; foxes, Wolverines and other wildlife and have the time please visit my gallery and tell me what you think their is a good chance you find something you like

Sincerely
Pali

Wow... to have that kind of chance... I would almost think he was asking you "Do I know you? Have we met before?"

Most of the time, that kind of feline is mostly not interested by what passes throught the window unless it's something out of common... Maybe he saw your camera and was curious about it (especially if it shined throught the window).

Great shot by the way!

Ooooh, cheetahs are such amazingly beautiful animals! :love: This is a perfect portrait, really. A great focus on the eyes.
The nose looks so lovely, too! And you can see every hair standing up on its head, hehe! :D

I love the headlong symmetry you managed to capture in the this photo. You don't see much of that in photos of cheetahs, but I love this.

I saw the thumbnail in my stack of deviations and was so excited as soon as I saw it. A cheetah! squee!. It really is a beautiful portrait Pali. I love your story. I could just picture him coming up to the glass as if to say Now what?

I love how close up you got to him. Very great timing getting him so close to the glass. I love the reflection in his eyes and you have just a lovely capture of his expression and face. I am a sucker for cats though, but I believe its a lovely portrait. Its nicely framed so you get the symmetry and leading lines of his tear markings and how it ends just near his neck.

He was bold and beautiful. I like the stubborn look that he is giving along with the small amount of drool at the corners of his mouth.
