Cheetah Walking Across Open Ground

Camera: Canon EOS 50D; Lens Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM; Shutter speed: 1/2500; Aperture: f/5.6; ISO: 400.
The above photo was taken in harsh light during a particularly dry winter in Botswana's Mashatu Game Reserve.
As a result of the drought, the terrain through which the cheetah was making its way was a uniform, dull brown, devoid of grass or vegetation.
Rather than stick with this coloring, I converted the photo to black and white in Lightroom. In summer, after good rains, Mashatu looks very different - see
Cheetah in Lush Vegetation to compare.
