Away From Home: December 19, 2010

“This cheetah was in the Samburu National Park in Kenya. We were on safari when we saw some other vehicles gathering around some animal. We drove up and there were two cheetahs sitting in the bush. I started to take pictures of them, and this one stared right at me. After letting me take this picture, both of them ran off across the bush. Seeing one cheetah was special enough, but to see two of them is amazing, especially since their numbers across Africa are declining. Truly an amazing animal.”
