This wildlife photography gives a whole new meaning to the word "candid." Not only are these images completely shot off-the-cuff, but they also convey the potential danger that can come from having a wild cheetah mere inches away.

While on a safari through the Serengeti in Tanzania, photographer Bobby-Jo Clow was caught off guard as this curious baby cheetah came ambling towards her. Most people in that situation would lock the doors and shut the sunroof, but Clow's wildlife photography instincts instead came into play, causing her to start snapping. Overall it looks like she got away unscathed, however the last shot does show the young cub bearing its teeth. Apparently Clow leaned in just that little bit too close to obtain the perfect shot.
