Ways of the Wild
Baaah, what a scenery Carl
I think I will buy a plane ticket tomorrow
this is real Africa and the compo just perfect
for sensitive people the anus might be a bit intrusive in the image LOL
I think the images that you have been producing lately ought to have much wider exposure, such as in wildlife and nature magazines, etc. This one, in particular, is very unusual and of a kind not often seen at all. It is not just an image of a beautiful animal ... there is action and activity and that makes a big difference. Having said that, I just wonder whether an f-stop of 11, or smaller even, and a shutter speed of 1/250, or slower even, were not attainable as I think you probably used camera support and it would have given you much more dof, rendering the vultures in sharp focus too. But truly fabulous as is!! Well done!!!

Very impressive shot! this is a scene of real life, as opposed to the romantic vision of Africa that we often see (and I like to practice!). You had the ideal point of view and we really have the feeling of living the scene. A very strong image!

What an awesome image showing the cycle of life as it is carried out every day of the year. Outstanding clarity showing much detail. Colors are true and natural and composition is perfect. Your Jackals remind me a lot of our Coyotes here in the States. Great job!!

Wat een spektakel! Ik zou hier de hele dag kunnen blijven kijken om te zien wat er allemaal langs kwam. Alleen al de onderlinge strijd tussen de gieren is prachtig om te zien en te fotograferen. Misschien heb je nog meer foto's om te posten. Vast wel, van de 90 zijn er nog wel meer de moeite waard, denk ik.
Een scene om nooit meer te vergeten.

Now this is true nature and just how it is supposed to be. Unfortunately we find people that are not happy with images like these as they consider it cruel and of sensitive nature, but that is how life are lived in the wild. This is a super image and not something we see often. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

A fine capture of this gruesome feast!
The low POV is great with the jackals well in focus and the slightly OOF waiting vultures completing the scene in a pleasing composition.
Well done MF! This is a shot I would love to have taken.

Great capture of this group on a daily life situation.Lucky You to have it close to the road.Wonderful natural colours and excellent sharpness.Thank You.
Have a good day!
Another one of your stunning photo's! and what a sighting! You sure had a fantastic time in Etosha. This is what Africa is all about and you've shown it to as Africa is. Only the fittest survive. I agree with Neels your photos should have a much wider exposure. Fantastic!

A wonderful contribution to my theme "animals feeding". The action is lively: the feeding frenzy obvious. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice evening
