Ha Paul,

Weer zo'n mooie hyena. De hyena op de achtergrond maakt het plaatje echt compleet. Schitterende foto.
Toen ik zelf in het Krugerpark was, heb ik ook regelmatig hyena's midden op de weg gezien. Het viel me op dat ze nog niet eens zo heel schuw zijn. In Letaba stonden ze zelfs bij het hek bedelen!

salut Paul,
très belle image de cette hyène, on connaît sa férocité. Ici elle semble assez douce, mais en arrière plan sa congénère surveille.
Bonne composition.

Hi Paul,
Great camera work gives us a sharply detailed and nicely colored view of this powerful looking animal. Thanks for sharing Paul.

Dag Paul,
200 mm focale afstand...wel echt dichtbij...
Fotografeer je dan door autoglas? Of is dit door een open bovendak van een 4x4?

Hello Paul
Another great shot of Spotted Hyena,
Excelent composition and lighting,
Great BG,Welldone.

Hello Paul

A super shot of these hyenas.The composition is well done.The detail and focus is sharp,and the colours very natural looking.Very good use of lighting.The eye contact is amazing.TFS


Hi Paul,
Another wonderful capture!!! THANKS for your video I watched them and it remind me so many good souvenirs of this beautiful country. Excellent choice for the soundtracks with songs of Johnny Clegg ;o)
Excellent composition, sharpness, details and POV . Very well done and can wait on your next post. TFS,

Belle photo , impressionnante, avec tous les détails.

Hi Paul, looks like you enjoyed your timein SA. Been going through some of the pictures and they are really great. Sorry not been able to comment much on many photos yet but I will do in the coming weeks. We've moved into an new villa and I am on the old dial up connections and it takes ages to do anything. I really miss being able to browse through trek nature.

So anyway great capture of these wild hyena's there awesome subjects and I am jealous of your trip.

More soon.
