5.00 pm, it's time for hyenas to leave their cove and patrol the territory for some food...

Hi Andrea, a well captured shot. A higher shutter speed may have helped with the motion blur but that is easy to say afterwards I know. Still you have done well to get so close and provide us with some good detail. TFS.

Bestia inquietante la iena!!!
Ci vediamo venerd́ sera?

Well frozen..

What shutter speed did you use - its hard to get daytime photos of these guys as they come out when its going dark and shutter speeds are low!!! You did well here though considering the time of day...
TFS :)
P.S Thats one reason why I dont like Kruger - tarred roads!! Still the wildlife is good and just as wild as anywhere else! I just prefer being away from civilisation which is what epitomises Botswana's game reserves....

I like the motion blur actually.
POV composition and colors are excellent.
Nice to see pics taken in the wild.
