"CHEETAH DAWN"                                            MARCH 2012

    

    
    

As the sun rose above the horizon the cheetah got up, walked across the dirt road and stood for a moment - backlit in a blaze of gold. I had been watching this family for a few days and although my philosophy is to always prepare for the most amazing moment imaginable, after two days of the cheetah doing not much moving at all, this possiblity had vanished from my mind. When it happened, my heart was pounding and I could barely think straight - really one of the most exciting directions a morning has taken in quite some time!
