Having been at CCF for 8 months now, I have a lot of cheetah pictures! (But probably still far fewer than Hari!). The attached may not be remarkable, but I like it -- particularly because it is a camera trap image. That's Hi-Fi getting up close and personal with the camera...

MisterAviator, I've deleted the two attached files, as they were huge. Please do refer to my signature for advice on uploading images to Safaritalk. Thanks, Matt.

It was at Chitabe Camp, in Botswana, in January of this year. Does anyone know how they are doing? We were told the mother cheetah lost her previous two litters to predators.

Gosh, some truly awesome images, mom with cubs in particular. One of our females have cubbed, only evidence thus far is that her nipples look like they have been used ( for want of a better word ) We are keeping our distance so as not to disturb them but will post pics just as soon as I get some !

Regards

Ayesha

Wow, excellent images Safariguide: how ofen do you see this family of Subadults? They are Shingo's cubs? How they have grown since samburumags captured them in her video here.

 

Thankyou for posting them, and welcome to Safaritalk. Hope to see more of your work! Matt.

OK, so I've just been thoroughly amazed and intimidated. Fantastic photos from everyone. Little over 2 months for my first safari. I am hoping to get photos for my own keepsake. After seeing all of these, I can't wait to go, but sheesh. I think I'll be too embarrassed to post what I come back with. :unsure:

One for Hari :)

When I visited the Okavango Delta in 2008, I was lucky enough to locate three cheetah cubs under a day old, and spent the next 11 days photographing them. At this stage, they were yet to open their eyes as they suckled and sought protection by their mother.

 

The shot was particularly hard to execute, with the tall grasses of the green season and a well concealed den beneath a small scrub bush.

 

Camera Techs:

 

Canon 5D + 500mm

 

1/250 @ F4

 

ISO640
