Mary Danz is an American photographer based in Dallas, Texas. She has traveled to isolated locations of the world to capture images of wildlife and landscapes. Mary took this photo in Botswana and describes the napping cheetah scene as:
"This gorgeous cheetah was absolutely hidden as we drove by the savannah. The only way our guide knew to slow down and take a closer look was because a National Geographic jeep was parked there! We pulled up and the photographer in the jeep motioned in the direction of the napping cheetah. It was spectacular sight."
Mary is currently working on her first book BRAVE HER, a major photographic project about facing one’s greatest fears and overcoming adversity through powerful portraits of women. In between adventures, Mary also runs an exquisite portrait photography business and cohosts Stages Podcast. Visit marydanzphotography.com or follow @marydanzphoto.
