Chinese Cheetahs

IMAGE OF THE MONTH FOR JANUARY    "Chinese Cheetahs"

Mara North Conservancy, Kenya

The Mara North Conservancy is owned and managed by local herders, who give the 11 lodges within the conservancy exclusive access to guide visitors within the conservancy. However, there are several main roads that pass through, so you often see local cars and supply trucks passing by while you are photographing wildlife. Motorcycles, usually cheap versions from China, are permitted on the main roads.

Since they are often seen speeding along the rough gravel roads, the guides call them "Chinese Cheetahs".

Canon 1DX Mark II, EF100-400mm f4-5.6 II lens at 400mm, exposure of 1/250 sec at f7.1, ISO 500, handheld.
