If there is one thing that hyena (Crocuta crocuta ) are, its curious! Perpetually on the look out for what might be edible, they constantly investigate just in case it might possibly make a meal. This young hyena and it’s sibling had spotted us from quite a distance away and had very cautiously worked their way right up to the vehicle.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.

    can’t help feeling a fondness for such curiosity and flat out guts!

  • It took this guy quite a while to work up the guts. He kept circling round and slowly inching closer. It was so fun to just sit and observe!
