Aged hand…

…woodworking hands…


…young sunsmart hands…


Hand painted…

We were only allowed to pat the cheetah

on her head, so my hand was safe…

…however, not so safe was this hand

to which she took exception. 

No harm was caused though..

This cheetah was not getting ready to attack us.

She just wove her way through our small group…


…flopped on the ground near our guide

so he/we could pat her.

This cat preferred having her ears and head patted

I only mention this because,

during our walk with Sita the Tiger

at Dreamworld many years ago,

Sita’s head was off-limits which suited

me as her teeth were much bigger.
