Cheetahs! My Favorites From Last Year

Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary has very special events - the Cheetah Runs! A few other facilities also have cheetah runs, but Animal Ark is unique in that the run is a fabulous opportunity for photographers. The cheetahs run, off-leash, on a big field in a "U" shaped pattern, with five photography blinds at the bottom of the "U". Photographers can capture the cheetahs running down towards them, then turning sharply in front of the blinds, then turning and running back up the hill. It allows the photographers to be at eye-level with the cheetahs during the turn. Here is a collection of some of my favorite photos from last year:
