Drama! Drama! Drama! I love the drama. I took this shot with my NIKON.
It was midnight and pitch black. I went to take a shower. It was outside and secured by a wooden fence. When I stepped out of my tent, I saw a cheetah so I turned around and went back to the tent, grabbed a flashlight and my camera and started clicking... continuous. I was lucky to get the shot. She was so close to the tent - my flashlight helped.
In the bush, you have to always be ready for the right moment. I keep my camera ready. And I carry 3 different flashlights with me.
