African Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus)
I had captured this picture of 'African Wild Dog' at Kruger National Park during our staying at Pretoriuskop Rest Camp. African Wild Dog is very rare in Kruger National Park and this is the first time we noticed such illusive species.
The African Wild Dog has very strong social bond, stronger than those of sympatric Lion or Spotted Hyena.

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of superb creature, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar,

You have captured well the movement of the animal. The point of view is showing the details of the African Wild Dog. The light is giving good rendering of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Sri,
Beautiful photo, great eye contact and facial expression. I never before realized how long this species' legs are... Simplistic yet perfect shot. Congratulations!
