This is Hannibal, a young male Cheetah from the Aachener Tierpark, Germany. This photo was built out of three close up captures to get a shallower depth of field. Manual Focus as always ;) 'cause autofocus sucks with that lens.
DailyMail reports this (looks like) FUN moment of wonder: A view of a young male cheetah putting his paw on Lee Whittam's hand [!] [Maybe many, like I, would wish, imagine and dream such an unlikely encounter with a wilder being happening suddenly...?!]
