Hi Eyal,
A very interersting look at this Black Backed Jackal.
I love the variety of coloured wildflowers here.
Thanks for sharing.

Interesting picture! The fox and its habitat is well shown a plesant composition and selective focus makes the animal stand out. Good Job

A beautiful shot of this Black-backed Jackal in the flowers...really a lovely photo. The lighting is very soft, and this little jackal has a great pose, too! Very nicely done.
