The smallest of the "big" cats, & the fastest land mammal.
We were barely 20 minutes out of Port Elizabeth airport when I caught site of this guy right up against the perimeter fence of one of the game reserves. I simultaneously yelled at the driver to stop & grabbed my camera & hung out the window to fired off a few shots. Unfortunately by the time we had turned the taxi round & returned to the spot he had moved on. These aren't great photos but I love his obvious interest in us as we sped by! This was also my first sighting of a one of these wonderful creatures in the wild.
