Life size. European customer.

Made this picture last year during a hike in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Just stumbled upon two cheetahs sunbathing (it was a very hot day and wildlife is very inactive during the heat of the day). I prefer picturing wildlife in the wild and preferable without telelens. It takes patience and silent communication and, as in this case, a bit of luck.
