A fully-grown cheetah looks tiny as it stands on top of a huge water pipe. The big cat is dwarfed by the enormous man-made structure near the South African city of Pretoria.

Leonard Velthuysen, 59, was able to photograph two cheetahs as they climbed over the pipe and explored its taps. The huge pipe transports water to Pretoria from a dam in Rietvlei Nature Reserve,which supplies the city with 15 per cent of its water needs.
