Another carnivore in the wild, an African wild dog crossing water in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Image with a Canon 1DX Mark 2 (beta) and EF 500L f4 IS ii. S/s 1/1250sec at f4, iso 200.
And thanks for the comments on my ealier leopard post ScottF, MrFF and DSLR dummy. I am not too good at figuring out how to work with the windows for comments and responses on this forum I am afraid.
Great bear shot also Triggermike - like the shape made by the bears jaws!
Cheers
Grant

Thanks Mr Fotofool, also Click
Quite a number of great places in Africa that are pretty good for wildlife photography, aside from the Okavango...also places in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania to name some of the best regions.

Really nice capture Grant. Great to see the wild dog numbers increasing across southern Africa. Have seen them on both trips I have made there in the last couple of years (Zambia and Botswana). Keep posting.
Cheers,
Phillip

A couple pf carnivore images that come quickly to hand off the hard drive. Taken with 1DX the Grizzly bear with the hangover was in Alaska, (it was a good night) ...and the snarling leopard was in Sri Lanka and the howling coyote was in Banff, Canada long after sunset.

Hi Falcnr.
Nice series of shots, particularly like the first one the title fits really well.

Cheers, Graham.

Just returned 2 weeks ago from photographing tigers in the wild in India. Had a couple of good sightings at the first park (Bandhvgarth) but the second one was a bust. Here are a couple of pics both taken with the 7DMKII and the 100-400 II (was a dynamite combination) except that I had to use a high ISO because of the low light most of the time.

Lovely shots, digigal. Tigers are definitely on my wishlist for big carnivores and those just feed the ambition!

Great African Painted Dog pictures. I've only seen them once at Little Vumbura in Botswana. They're real eating machines!
