An intense image! The unfettered focus makes you wonder what the object of the cheetahs’ interest is!

Great expression on this cat- so intense and focused! And you can see the tense power in the shoulders. Well done!

This cheetah is locked on to its prospective prey with every fibre of its being. Its body is a coiled spring and prepared to launch its attack if the moment feels right. An excellent capture of this pre-chase behaviour, Ron. First Class. Very well done!

A powerful image. The “coiled spring” analogy made by Carol fits perfectly. Love the intense stare. Excellent shot, Ron.
