Photographer's Note

Cheetah, photographed at the Lion & Rhino Reserve near Muldersdrift, just outside of Johannesburg.

The cheetah (Order: Carnivora, Family: Felidae, Genus: Acinonyx, Species: Jubatus) is the world's fastest land mammal, capable of speeds of 70 mph.

My Fuji was on maximum optical zoom for this shot, but I still wasn't close enough and had to crop quite a bit afterwards, hence the slight grain in the photo. I also notice a little bit of movement in the picture, but I think that the grain and the movement adds to the idea of the speed that this animal is capable of. After all, nothing on land is faster than this!!!
