Thanks for all the info EML i use ps cc and lr5 too but will need to have a look at nik software for sure :)

Hi Bornshooter, if your not already using it, also look at On One's Perfect Photo Suite, currently at 7, next month they release the new Suite 8, my view is these Guys are getting close to being a Giant Killer, only software I can see that "may" become an Adobe replacement.

I often feel a bit like this myself, weathered, too stupid to get out of the Snow (Or Rain/Dust/quick young people on a sidewalk), leaning to one side, needing support, it's called getting Old I think.

I am often asked, "what is your favourite Animal to Photograph", Leopards spring always to mind immediately, but when I consider first, I would say Wild Dog, there's just something amazingly intelligent in the way these Animals operate, they look wonderful as well, especially like this, Dawn Light, almost floating @ f/2.8.

Interesting choice and great picture! The way these animals organize their hunting is quite impressive. I believe they have the highest kill rate/attempt of all African animals (and maybe in the world for all I know).

Hi Eldar, your right, amazing hunters, unfortunately the 2nd most endangered predator in Africa.

While not a wild dog, "Dusty's" kill rate is 100%, he's 1 for 1 with snakes.  ;D

Hi RPT, Not sure if you mean my "Wild Dog" or Northstar's "Wild Red Haired Snake Killing" Dog.

But mine was shot in Northern South Africa, near the Sand River & Mala Mala, pack of wild dogs had come into the area hunting, we followed them for a couple hours, in this shot we decided to sit on the Road hoping for the Dogs to come out of the Bush, eventually they did, but because they were running down the Road, and I dislike Images that have Roads in them, I used the 400f/2.8 II @ f/2.8 to try & blow out the Road & background, Focused on the Eye that was in the best light with centre point spot, AI Servo, shot @ 12fps, 36 frames, a couple turned out Ok.

This Dog slowed to an amble, which is unusual for these guys, they're mostly loaded up on Starbucks and jumping all over the place. Once they put their minds to Hunting it's almost impossible to follow them through the bush, you need to try and determine when/where they will break out of the bush & try to get in front of them, in all the sightings I've had I've only ever seen one actual Kill, a group of 18 Dogs chased & pulled down a Large Male Spotted Hyena, took about 2 minutes from initial chase to the Hyena in pieces (Wild Dogs unlike Leopards/Lions etc which throttle first, basically shred their Kills), I was so shocked I forgot to take Images until it was all over.

In the attached shot, the left Image shows the issue, poor background, vehicles, cluttered.

So I decided to wait to get the front Dog over the Rise with just the Road Rise as a background, right Image.

Then the Centre Image was as the Dog moved into FF and I could Focus better on the Animals left eye.

Oh boy! And here I was thinking that it is so easy to shoot dogs how hard can it be to shoot a wild dog? I did not realise it would be so hard. Oh and the two minute hyena hunt wow, that must have been something. Thanks for the detailed description. It puts that single wild dog picture into perspective.

I must admit the question was for Northstar. I never imagined one needed to put so much work into a dog picture :)
Thanks for enlightening us here. I am sure not many understood the effort behind that shot of yours.
