This shot was taken in Rietvlei, between Joh'Burg and Pretoria. First he/she ran accross the path a few times, and then started sneaking peaks at me from the entrance to the burrows. It was my last day in South Africa, and one of the shots I was most pleased with

Hi Jeroen. Now this is one picture i would had loved to have taken . You have captured such fine detail in the fur with such natural colours. I like the way its looking out from behind the grass at you .I would like to put this in my favorites. Very well done TFS.

A good pic that shows a good DOF and BG. I like your sharpness but feel it may have been over sharpened and you can see it on the fur.

Hi Jeroen ,

Awesome capture of this Black-backed Jackal. Very nice portrait. Jackle is just looking into your lens. Nice sharp capture with great focus.
