Catwalk by clippercarrillo Catwalk by clippercarrillo
The soft overcast enabled me to get the cat without the usual hard contrast that hides the whites on the fur. Unusual is the fact that claws and tail are visible in a walking posture which captures the entire cat in motion. Shot at high ISO and shutter speed, there is plenty of detail to study and absorb how the cheetah walks. It was Winter light, sacred in it's gentleness. Taken at the Kansas City Zoo, Kansas City, Missouri, USA, 1/7/2012. Note that cheetahs do not have retracting claws. They are the most ancient of the large cats. This particular cat broke into a run immediately after the photo was taken.

The reason why the cheetahs claws are visible is because cheetahs have semi retractable claws. It helps them like cleats help football players.

By the way this is a great capture!
