I am having problems posting photos on another site and they claim that the reason that the photos won't post is because of the https security certificate. But they work fine on this site and another one.

Anyway on the cheetahs when I was on my African hunt we did a hunting with cheetah's walk. We wandered around with the for what seamed like 5 or more hours before they took down a couple of springboks. Then we got our pictures takes with them. That little adventure was worth the trip over to Africa alone.

If you haven't read of my adventure here is the link to it.

They are being hosted on a friends site.
http://utahsportsmen.com/pictures/

But they need to be hosted on a web site that allows third party hosting. We used to use Photo Bucket but they changed their terms and want to charge you for the privilege of it. But once they are hosted you want to go to the site and open up the photo. Then right click on the photo and select "copy image location." Then come back onto this site and click on "Insert Image" in the Quick Reply or Reply To tool box. Then once it is open select "From URL" and paste the image location URL into the box. Then unclick the box that says "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" the click OK and it should show up full size.

There is also a way to do it if you are using a smart phone but since I don't have one of those I don't worry about it

Nope no photo shopped.

The cheetah's were semi tame but lived in a fenced in compound. We made arrangements to go on this adventure a few days ahead so that the owners would quit feeding them to get them into the hunting mode. As we were walking behind and watching them you could of heard a pin drop and there were 8 of us following them.

It was interesting sitting next to them where you could hear bones popping as they ate. At one point on of them got mad at the other one and let out a very menacing snarl.

Here are a few more pictures of them.
