Cheetah in full stride chasing prey animals IMG_5865

Cheetah running full speed chasing fleeing Springbok that are not in the picture. The dust from the prey animals is shown ahead of the Cheetah but she was not fixated on the Springbok that was nearest to her. I noticed in several chases that the Springbok do not seem to run straight away from the Cheetah, instead running so that it can narrow the gap quickly.
