12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia is home to a large population of cheetahs. Some of these cats were brought in as orphans at a very young age and will never be released back in the wild. They run a few times a week on a dirt track following a piece of cloth that is pulled by a cable system at a very high speed. This provides great training for the cheetahs and excellent opportunities for photographers.
