Butterfly attempting to land on Cheetah's nose _GS14253abc

Butterfly about to land on the nose of the Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus). The Cheetah moved shaking its head and the butterfly moved off. I wish it had indeed landed!


I think the butterfly is an African Monarch but I am far from an expert or even a novice at identifying butterflies in my own country much less Africa!
