Languid and lovely. Is this animal in a local zoo? Seems like he enjoys his surroundings.

The lion may be the kind of the jungle but the cheetah is the high emperor!

Repare na tranqüilidade e na atenção da moça. Caçadora.

Elegant, wise and beautiful! I love it! What a fantastic capture, JM!! A high emperor indeed!

Kay said...

It's not a high perch, but it's nice to see that they've attempted to give it a higher vantage point. Very nice shot of such a beautiful animal!

How simple for a log to become a throne.

Zoo's have changed a lot. Although I still prefer the animals to be in the wild, this zoo does seem to be one of the better ones.

Wonderful. Your photo of a family of cheetahs a couple of years ago, is what drew me to your blog in the first place.

A big hug for this one.

Dina said...

Great shot. The big cats always look so regal.

Wonderful composition and the cheetah looks energetic and alert even in repose!

Jack said...

This guy is a cousin of the leopard I showed recently. Very nice.

I have been thinking about your animal shots. Either your zoo is wonderfully organised for photographers or you are a wonderful photographer ... I suspect the latter. Your zoo shots have been truly lovely to behold.
