Cheetah Cub Kill by MrStickman Cheetah Cub Kill by MrStickman
Cheetah Cub Kill

This very young Cheetah Cub shared in the small kill provided by his mother. She gracefully caught a small rabbit wondering by. Initially the cubs just played with the rabbit before finally eating some of the meat - quite possibly their first taste of it - as they were not weaned yet.

Maasai Mara
Kenya, Africa

Additional EXIF Info
Lens: Canon 400mm f/2.8 L
Exposure Bias: Av(+0.66)
Flash: Canon 580EX II (-3EV)

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-07-03
Cheetah Cub Kill by *MrStickman is not only an exceptional photo, but also a startling reminder of the ferocious, real world of wild animals... a stark contrast to the cute and tame feline photos we are accustomed to seeing. ( Featured by IsacGoulart )

He is such a cute baby. That blood on his mouth is almost creepy though. Amazing shot.

I think the part in the picture that strikes me the most is the blood on his wiskers. Just like :IsacGoulart: said, it's "a stark contrast to the cute and tame feline photos we are accustomed to seeing." :clap: Congrats on the DD, you and you're feline friend have deserved it :D
