Throw Back Thursday to 2012

Tanzania - Serengeti - Aug 2012
While leading a 'Thru the Lens Safari' with Thomson Safaris, we observed three male cheetahs in the distance.  Before we knew it, they were heading straight for us and one of them decided to play cat and mouse with us hiding behind a tree.  This went on for several minutes allowing us to get some really fun photographs.

Using a 70-200mm at the widest aperture, I was able to create a very shallow depth of field focusing only on the eyes of the Cheetah.

Nikon D3s, 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm, ISO 200, 1/1500 sec at f/2.8

Cheers and happy photo'ing
