Keeping with the current theme of adorable pictures of the week, this week we’re bringing you one of the cutest shots of a ferocious predator that I’ve ever seen. This week’s photo, taken by former African Safaris Consultant client John Pickford, shows a young cheetah growling in the grass near Chief’s Island in the Okavango Delta. As John says, “The photo was a young cheetah who was trying her hardest to convince us she was brave and calling for Mum at the same time.”
What really amazes me about this shot is how close John was able to get, along with the perfect timing to capture that growl/yawn. John is hoping to return in May for another holiday and more awesome photos. Thanks John for the incredible picture, and hope to see you in Africa soon!
P.S. If you have any beautiful pictures of Africa from your own travels, we’d love to see them! Feel free to email them to edward[at]africansafaris[dot]com and we’d be happy to post them on our blog with your permission.
