I've had this photo for a long time found somewhere in the internet, I really want to thank the unknown (to me) photographer. Some days ago my eye fell onto it and I felt I wanted to do it. Nature is sacred to me, all the animals that are close to extinction because of humanity's lifestyles are also sacred and I am on my own small personal path to help in some way every time I can. The way this cheetah looks at someone or something at the other side made me think that this could be me or some other human trying to excuse the unexcusable. I love the result and I hope I've justified this wonderful wild creature.
