[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture of running 'Spotted Hyena' in Kruger National Park, during our staying in Northern area. To me it always a great challenge to capture the picture of Hyena because they are active just before Sunrise and after Sunset, when light isn't in your favour.

I took this picture at about 4.45am, long before Sunrise. In background bit bright sky is enough here to make your picture dark. Here I used very high ISO and personally I'm impressed the details and exposure I achieve

Hello Srikumar,
Great action shot showing its feet off the ground while in a running mode. Nicely focused and displaying plenty of detail. The slobber on its lower mouth gives it a rather menacing appearance. I like its intense facial gaze as it comes running at full gallop towards you .

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of superb creature, perfect focus, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
