Zimanga Wolfpack by MorkelErasmus Zimanga Wolfpack by MorkelErasmus
These are of course not real wolves, but the endangered African Wild Dog is actually also known as the "Painted Wolf". I was photographing this pack lying on my side in the road at Zimanga Private Game Reserve, and amazing new photographic reserve in South Africa. Check out their website: www.zimanga.com

So do wild animals ever try to get YOU or does your camera make them too curious to care? .-.

:) sometimes you have close encounters but I haven't had any REAL danger yet - touch wood.

Was this at sunset? The lighting makes it seem really dramatic and almost like... the Wild Dogs are anticipating something, just by the lighting. Great shot :)

Amazing. African Wild Dogs are fascinating; probably one of my favourite animals. Lucky you for seeing all this wildlife on a regular basis!

The back light is really neat. I like the bright outline it gives to their figures, and makes even the one in the back part of the group while his being out of focus gives this depth.
