These are beautiful African wild dogs, one of the most endangered canines in the world. They can take down prey as large as wildebeests and zebras when they hunt in large family packs.

    WOW . . . I love this shot Marija !! Great catch of the perfect pose. This image is very interesting to me. In part, it looks like a photo yet, in part it also looks like a painting. I could envision this shot framed and on walls in all kinds of places. Good luck with this one … GREAT Work!!! I’m going to have to check these guys out next time I get over there.

  • Thank you John very much for your wonderful comment. The hounds were very active today and usually I don’t see them. They are gorgeous canines and I loved how they posed for me :)
