Outstanding photo - life in the animal world isn't so good though
debbietegtmeier January 07, 2015
For me,this is one of the best action photos on ViewBug, hands down. The timing, focus, composition, lighting, and subject are beyond excellent. Every little bit dirt and dust is perfectly frozen in time and the desperate look of doom and despair on the face of the prey tells precisely what follows this spectacular shot. While I am far from a professional photographer, I do know what I like and I truly LOVE this photo.
georgekoncz January 08, 2015
Unbelievable shot, how lucky can you get????
hibbz January 08, 2015

More from Bridgena_Barnard

May, 2013


First Christmas in KTP – Every body were giggling and laughing about soaring temperatures and, sweltering nights, sun burn and what not. Re-assuring myself, and them, that something special is waiting for us.

We were the first vehicle to leave camp. As we were leaving the Kids asked me what is on my Christmas wish list – A Cheetah kill – and a giggle from the youngest let me feel I was maybe to specific. Last mentioned, spotted the Cheetah brothers on the dune sitting up straight.
We are 2 photographers and thus we had to make a u-turn, enabling both of us to focus on the cheetahs. Drips and drabs other vehicles started to arrive and you could see that it was a special day. Every one was dressed – clean shirts, ladies with make-up and friendlier moods every where. We were making small talk with a couple in the vehicle next to us and the next moment the Cheetahs started their stalk – over the road and ran between vehicles towards the riverbed.

Dilemma struck – we were facing the wrong way! With speed and accuracy the driver made a 3 point Turn in a moment of chaos and maneuvered through the fleet of vehicles in reverse facing the riverbed. Window mount still on the other window, 1.7 converter still on the 500 lense, but yet I got the shots. Within seconds every thing was over.

In hind side: Make a specific wish on a special day, don’t order coffee from the passenger waiting for a special moment (the whole Christmas outfit smelled of pure Jacobs). Be aware of oncoming traffic (Vehicles and possible Prey) and be fully prepared for the unexpected!
What are the chances to witness this? One thing is certain: In Africa 100% . Patience and perseverance in sweltering heat paid off and in return we got a memory that will last a life time!
