Cheetah Run - Photo and Comments by Guy Dekelver
Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) and common ostrich (Struthio camelus), Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania: we found this cheetah hanging out in the crater, until all of the sudden it started showing interest in what seemed to be an ostrich. After some sneeking up, the cheetah started gathering speed, one of the most amazing things ever witnessed. The ostrich also took off, at which point in time, I also saw a hare trying to get out of the way. Up to date, I suspect the hare being what the cheetah really was after. With the hare not being captured in this scene, it results in an image of which up to date people ask me whether it has been put together, … and oh yes, the ostrich decided to turn around and chase off the cheetah, also allowing the hare to get away.
