The cheetah, fastest land animal, surveying her domain from the top of a termite mound. This image was captured on one of the last days of our safari this past November (2017). We were on the main road in the Serengeti National Park, heading SE to the Ngorongoro Crater, when we spot this cheetah just off the road. We stopped and the animal just sat there and posed for us.
The second image in the series was captured by Joanne on the porch of our tented lodge at Kubukubu on the central Serengeti. Here is a link to the tented lodge. I was trying to capture the sunrise from a quick setup with the table, a book, and a box of tea as my tripod was not readily available. I was successful in my setup and capture, third image. The fourth image shows a kopje, a portion of the long grass Serengeti, and the great migration of wildebeest and zebra.
She really does like a queen looking over her kingdom, although maybe she's just looking for lunch. I think your choice of main is probably the best; however, I'm wild about clouds and the herd of zebras is also great so I have a hard time choosing between those two. The sunrise is clearly worth capturing and I got a chuckle out of the picture Joanne took, Your intense concentration is so typical of you. The fourth image does show the magnitude of the migration.

Beautiful series of the safari on the Serengeti Plain. Takes me back to my time there, lot of nice memories and I still have plenty of photos that I could share. Maybe I need to go back and looks for some to share, even though to me they are old photos now...
We had the pleasure of watching the cheetahs and their hunts...Awe those sunset in the Serengeti is unlike anywhere else... I wish we had more time there to go around, but with the wildlife around, we couldn't venture out too far at sunset.
There is an empty belly to be filled. The Cheetah is well positioned on top of the little hill. HE/she is clearly on the watch out and scanning the game and potting weakness. The kill can get started! Great story telling in this image!
