Shadowness - Prey I love to take nature related photos, especially close-ups and wild animals. My favorite animals are big cats. I like their wild, untamable souls. en How dare You? <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />This is one of the cheetahs(Acinonyx Jubatus) from the Krefelder Zoo.

This is one of the african cheetahs(Acinonyx Jubatus) from the Krefelder Zoo. You can't imagine how many times I tried to capture a cheetah chirping, I mostly pressed the shutter release too late. They do it very fast and this was more like a lucky shot but I'm glad to have it ^.^ Fri, 20 Apr 2012 04:06:54 -0400 Dawns Awakening <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />This duck swims on the river Lippe which is located in Germany.
