Here you can see who won the race. These were shot with the wide angle lens when the chase had moved to the other side of the vehicle.

WOW! incredible shots, thanks for posting the follow ups. Isn't kind of rare to get those cat's in the wild, or am I way off? I've been reading about hunting them, and it seems you can spend a week in a blind and still not ever see one.

thanks, jon

Thanks, Jon

When we go to Africa we always see lots of cats in the wildlife preserves where no hunting is allowed. I am sure it would be as you described in the hunting areas.

When you mention a week in a blind, you are probably referring to leopards which are very nocturnal. I saw at least one leopard on each trip but they were considered somewhat lucky sightings and certainly not guaranteed.

yes i was thinking about leopards. I'm looking forward to going there some time in the future.

do you have any other pics of cats beside leopards and cheetahs? I know there are other species, but not sure what they look like.

thanks again, and good job maintaining this site.

Greta shots Len, but that's not lunch (too small) that's a snack!
