Cheetah Cub by psychostange Cheetah Cub by psychostange
Today I went back to Wuppertal Zoo, it had been almost three months since I had been there for the last time. Today was the first sunny day in a whole while, so I took my chance =)
I went there to take photos of the cheetah cubs in the first place and was disappointed to see they weren't outside, but just before I left I went again and there they were, bathing in the beautiful last light of the day. They've grown a lot since the last time, almost as tall as their mummy now.

Do you like the sharpness of the photo or do you think I might've taken it a little too far? I'm not really fond of the fence in the background, either, but the enclosure isn't really suitable for "wildlife-like" photos.

I love this image. I agree with you that the wire enclosure detracts from the overall feeling . I would say to blur that out, possibly using lightroom type program. As much as I hate zoos , for the fact that the animals are caged and not free, I realize that due to loss of habitat , the zoos play a very important roll in preserving these rare animals from extinction.
