Ten wild dogs in the road

Ten wild dogs in the road

Here are a few more of the more than 2400 photos that we took of the pack of 15 wild dogs in March. The one shot in the road has 10 dogs in the one photo. This is a large pack, as all of the dogs are approaching full size. If we spent the next year in the park non stop, it is unlikely that we would experience 5 hours of uninterupted time with a pack of this size. We were indeed fortunate. That dosen't mean we won't be looking hard again on our next trip.

Some of the comments are correct. In order to find and photograph animals you need to be looking not only for them directly, but at the action of other species and you need to put in the time. We are normally the 1st or 2nd out the gate in the morning, and don't get back until 5 minutes or so before closing. Sometimes we cut it very close. not recommending this, but you can get tied up sometimes.

Hope you enjoy,

Bob and Sherry

Lovely Images!
by: James

These images were not luck - you are one of the first out the gates in the morning so you are photographing in good light while the majority of visitors are still in camp having their breakfasts. Put in the effort and you will get the results, well done!

I bet your biggest challenge here was which dog to focus on!

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
