This is a stunning shot. The detail in it is incredible and I love the natural colours you've caught. What's really good is how you still have the eyes bright and in focus. Great work!

I'd love to know what lens you used for this. The EXIF says 700mm, so I guess a 500mm F4 VR and 1.4 teleconverter?

nope...cheetahs are quite harmless, they will rather run away than become involved in a confrontation...
