Black backed Jackal with Thomson Gazelle
There are so many things to observe in Africa beside the big five everyone is looking for. Ingrid was one of these persons showing us the 99.99% of the other wildlife of Africa.
A real shame she left!

Hi Tom,
A fantastic wildlife shot here Tom, want a wonderful moment captured superbly. Ingrid is missed greatly here, but I understand her reasoning. Thanks for this Great posting.

Hello Tom,
What a great and dramatic scene. Excellent composition and timing. The colours are so nice too. Kind dedication to Ingrid, a real nature lover. But I also understand and respect her decision. I'm sure she continues to observe and enjoy African nature.
Friendly regards,

Powerful and dynamic capture with real drama Tom. Well done! Impressive work and definitely not an average every day's presentation! Bravo!

What an incredibly DETAILED image of the Jackal on the hunt.
BRAVOS are in order.
Am sure Ingrid Shaul will love this one.
Regards from Canada.

As someone (famous [email protected]) has aptly said - 'Nature is red in Tooth & Claw!' Felicitations.


Hi Tom

Action in the Serengeti!

Were you there in time to see the big migration?



Bonjour Tom,
Très belle mais très difficile scène de la vie sauvage restituée avec beaucoup de réalisme.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

  • Great

Hello Tom,
Fantastic action photo. Great moment to make a unique photo. You did it in superb sharpness, details, DOF and very beautiful natural colours.
You are completely right about the 99.99%.

A "lucky" snapshot quite well managed Tom, a rare sight indeed!

Hello Tom,
Yes, we all miss Ingrid but we all respect her decision and she will always be our friend. What an absolutely stunning viewing this must have been. Although I wouldn't want to see them kill the little buck but what a sighting. Very well done for being so sharp.

Hi Tom

Wow, great action shot, poor gazelle, but that's life I guess. Excelent compositiona and sharpness.
