Photographer's Note

I am afraid that this picture will not be especially appreciated but I am very proud of it. It is even a bit sensational.
What you see here is the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), also known as the painted hunting dog, painted wolf, African hunting dog or African painted dog.

We saw them in Niokola Koba National Park (UNESCO Heritage List). Our guide has been many times there but he saw them for the first time. There were even doubts if the painted dogs really live there. We were very lucky to see a group of at least ten animals and for quite a long time so I was able to take pictures and movie. Fortunately, we were on the bus :).

See my movie

In the movie, you can see that the animals try to eat the rests of the black plastic bag. I was horrified to see it. What we do with our nature.
