Cheetah Cubs, 3 months old
I took this picture a couple of years ago at Cheetah Outreach, Spier Wine Estate, Capetown. The one with the darker markings, looking as though he is in Feline heaven, is a King Cheetah. (There are only about 28 of them in the whole of South Africa. Their markings are caused by a Recessive gene in both parents).
I was invited to wingwalk in aid of the RAFA Benevolent fund. So I took to the air on the Press Day of the Shoreham Air show back in July. We have some footage taken from the wing of the plane as I flew over the sea at Brighton, keep coming back here as at some point we'll get it transferred and up on the site for you to see.

15 May, 2013: WHAT IS IN A NAME? INCREDULITY
INCREDULITY I sometimes cannot believe what I read in the papers – total stupidity, ‘yuman rights’, political correctness but this one really takes the prize. If it had been April 1st I would have assumed it to be an April Fool's joke but we are in mid-May. Apparently an old lady... Read more...
