Wish you have a nice and prosperous NEW YEAR 2016.

I had captured this Photograph of Hyena in Pretoriuskop, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Morning game drive....

We were going to Protoriuskop loop and saw this mother Hyena in the middle of the road.

It's a Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta) found in Sub-saharan Africa. It's also called as Laughing Hyena.

Srikumar da hope you are well.Another beautiful wild life image.

Beautiful shot of this not so well liked animal in great light.

Hi Srikumar
I like the soft light and the colors on the shrubs.
Not an esthetic animal, but strong and able to survive.
