escape

ln Kenya's Masai Mara,we were watching a cheetah fallowing a group of gazelles for half an hour. My target was using a slow shutter speed to catch the movement of hunting cheetah. l decided to wait near gazelles, not to miss the moment. Cheetah was hiding, but he was not very lucky, he was a bit far and gazelles were moving to another place there was not any bushes or long grasses, and than he started moving slowly but at that moment gazelles noticed that they were watched by a cheetah and started running immediately. l was ready for slow shutter speed, gazelles were very fast so my shutter speed choice was 1/60 and l had this shot of gazelles escaping.
