Your notes are very interesting, especially about the dewclaw. His head looks very similar to a German Shepherd. A nice pose as he gazes off into the distance. Well done.

We always seem to be transplanting...do Noah start it all?:-) Very interesting James. Quite the bite as you say...and it looks like it can catch up quickly in a race. I wonder if they are aggressive? Or do they have any disease problems such as some mammals here in the US which can be known to carry rabies? You are the man of the world...wow!

Great capture of an African Wild Dog in a great pose that suits the POV to show us the features. Fine lighting, colours, BG and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing this fine image,

Very interesting notes, James.
I am not surprised that this is called the painted wolf! That is an excellent description.
Superb details of the animal's shape and paterned coat. That white tail must make an excellent signal.

Quite a beautiful animal is this African Wild Dog. The coat, which you show in wonderful colors and details, is so intricate. I love the bushy white tail. Wonder how long it stays so white. Very informative notes as always.

Hi James. As you say in your interesting notes a lean animal. but no fat just built for its power. You have captured good detail in the unusual coat. with a long white tail. I like the pose with the dog on the look out. well done TFs.

I don't know why but this animal scares me a lot! Yet, the way you took the picture, it is beautiful, with the most beautiful coat one could imagine for such dogs. The colours are sharp and cristal clear even with the dim light. It's funny because I now recognize at first glance your pictures, your signature is in each one. I couldn't describe it, I just know it's yours by the composition. Thank you James,

Very beautiful photo of this Wild Dog. On all my visits in Africa (more then 10 times) I've never seen them. Great sharpness and colours.

It's so rare to see a non-blurry image of an African Wild Dog, yet here we have one :-)
This is technically perfect!
Very good quality and superbly composed.

Excellent view of this interesting African Wild Dog, it looks almost like a mixture of a Hyena and a Dog! Amazing colours and patterns very sharply shown here against the fine natural background. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Splendid shot of a majectic healthy specimen.
Shooting for behind enhances the beauty of its colors.
