I have over the years seen some wonderful animals such as the cheetah.
I have decided to share this photographic work and show the wildlife that I love in a new way.
This is one of many new photos I will be sharing.
I hope you enjoy the new work, that came from the camera that makes my paintbrush jealous for my time.
Can you see some other critter in the spots?
I can, but let's have some fun and let me know what you see.
Did you know?
Ancient Sumerians were the first to depict cheetahs in artwork. The oldest cheetah carving dates back to 3000 B.C.
Cheetahs were symbols of royalty.
Ancient Egyptians believed a cheetah goddess named "Mafdet" carried the pharaoh's soul to the after world.
(How did that come about?... I wonder)
Cheetahs can’t roar,
but they make a variety of sounds
including chirping, purring, barking,
hissing, bleating ( sound kinda like a meow) and they growl.
At the end of the 19th century, there were about 100,000 cheetahs.
Today, there are between 9,000 and 12,000 left – mostly in Africa.
They are the fastest land animal in the world, but can they out run extinction?
I say they can!
If enough people care and work together and give the cheetah the land and food they need to live and raise their families.
Let it be.
Shake it like a Polaroid picture ...
which is making a nice come back.
I still have mine. Fun stuff.
Or go for something with a little more memory
Happy picture taking!
