what a great expression on the face of the hyena. Excaxtly the way I remember them. I like the way you decided to choose a portrait layout.

What a look it gave you.
Liked the intence look on his face..
Lovely shot,and interesting note :).
Ok...first thing, before i forget: when will we have the chance to see a picture of ****** (perhaps on the other Trek sites)???? You at least made me vry curious :)
Right...now back to this terrific shot of a hyena! I love it!
The animal is very well presented from a frontal POV and the vertical composition you creted here is absolutely wonderful! I really like seeing some vegetation around it and also that gorgeous sky.
The details are great and sharp, the natural colors are also beautiful and the pose you captured it in - still a little sleepy - is great and maybe a bit funny :)
Splendid work, my friend!
BRAVO and TFS

I'm not sure you captured the look of him thinking he was a fool, more like he is ver-r-r-r-r-ry interested in you, though he does look well fed. That eye-ball contact is fantastic and with teeth showing and the slighlty tilted head to get a better look at you.
Great shot with excellent exposure, colour and detail.

An scaring close encounter!
Is not supposed to be laughing? :-)
A very good capture from the wild, specially at the wake up.
Just look at these eyes!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

I see you have come back from South Africa with a collection of superb shots to delight us.:)This is a fantastic shot. Sure he looks surprised and bit foolish. Reminds me of the dumbest one of " Lion king":D
The timing is perfect, so are the composition , POv, DOF ,sharpness and details. Enjoyed reading your notes too.

A great shot of this animal with bushveld background to match. They always seem to be on the move whenever I see them and capturing a portrait shot like this is special.
Funny. Why wouldn't they have you take the 400mm? Well you managed well with the smaller one and got a great pose and portrait out of it! Well done. Cheers, Klaus

This is a real wildlife picture: natural environment, difficult lighting conditions and uncontrollable background! You overcame all these disadvantages and captured a great shot. I like the great eye contact and the "smile" on the hyena's face! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful composition and interesting POV. I like also pose of the mammal. You kept a very nice climat of the place and also important details of the animal.

very lively capture from a very intense encounter from a dramatically low POV apparently from down on your knees. I also like to see so much environment around the hyena. So it is really pulling me into the scene. Thank you!

You are making me drool!These images are wonderful.The POV is awesome.
The focus is sharp with excellent details.The eye contact is amazing.
The colours are natural and well saturated.The composition is lovely.
It sounds like she made quite an impression on you. I do think it was a wise choice to respect your armed protector rather than follow your first impulse. This hyena doesn't look any too friendly himself. I don't think I've ever seen a straight on photo of one. It is very dramatic. He looks like "one tough cookie" ! ... if you know the expression.

Hi Annick, here is the one that I missed. Very good pov with those teeth showing, a good head on portrait. I followed your links, thanks.
