of Africa by LensReflex of Africa by LensReflex
My entry for :iconcrphotography:'s Where I Live contest!

I think the cheetah perfectly illustrates my homeland of South Africa - it's one of our most symbolic animals, found almost exclusively on the continent of Africa. When one thinks of South Africa, immediately one thinks of lions, elephants, leopards, hippopotamus, and the cheetah. It is an animal that is synonymous with the country. It represents our diverse, unique wildlife - and since we South Africans are especially proud of our animals, it is basically the essence of Africa in one streamlined, spotted package. I am proud of where I live, and proud of what my country has to offer to the world.

I visited quite a few animal farms in South Africa, but I was not lucky enough to see any cheetahs or leopards.
Beautiful shot!

Yes, they are quite elusive for the most part unfortunately ^^;
Thank you!
