Photographer's Note

The highly intelligent African Wild Dog, taken at the Kruger National Park last year. This was a shot from my old Fuji "non-digital" camera - the shutter actually gave up the ghost while taking this series of shots! I know the quality is not the best, but these animals are very interesting, and since I've had my new digital, I haven't seen them again. Here's some info on the wild dog:

Lycaon pictus (painted wolf in Latin), is an unlikely creature; long-legged and slender, with broad skull and hyena-like ears, he looks like an awkward teenage boy, not yet full-grown. It lives in small packs of seven to 10 adults for cooperative hunting and raising of pups. The pack may travel a range of several hundred square miles in its search for prey. They eat anything that is edible, even insects, but generally prefer a good dose of fresh meat.

Tech: Cropped and adjusted levels (Weather was bad). Hope you enjoy.
