I wouldn’t have known that it was International Cheetah Day if I hadn’t come across a post about it on a blog I follow (de Wets Wild, which I would highly recommend if you are interested in South African wildlife).
I’ve been fortunate to spend a fair bit of time with cheetahs now, both during my time with Wildlife Act last year, and this past holiday. I’ve seen a somewhat half-hearted (and unsuccessful) hunt, but I have never seen them going at full speed, except on the wildlife documentaries I’ve seen on TV. Perhaps my time will come to see that in person 🙂
I hope you enjoy my selection of cheetah photos today. TGIF, and have a great day everyone!

Adorable moment captured and witnessed of the mom and baby cheetah! Lovely!:)
Thank you Christy! 🙂
Beautiful, beautiful photographs Jen! Aren’t they just the most graceful creatures!? Here’s hoping that generations to come will still be able to experience the thrill of an encounter with a wild cheetah in its natural habitat.
Thanks you also for the kind words about de Wets Wild!
I hope you are right – wild places and the flora and fauna that inhabit them are so very important, yet some days it seems like less and less people care about them.
Sadly your words ring so very true.
