Wonderful capture with great action and good details.
Well done.

Hello Thijs,
Impeccable timing on the capture of the wolf in mid-air. I started to call it a fox since it is so similar to a fox in appearance.

Hareketli olmasına rağmen netlik çok güzel.
elinize sağlık.
En güzel dileklerimle hoşcakalın.

Hallo Thijs,
Prachtig moment om zo vast te leggen, ook al is het uit een dierentuin. Mooie natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte. Erg goede compositie.

Nice shot. It looks has if the wolf is wearing black socks! You have captured an action filled moment. Thaks for sharing.

Hello Thijs,

Very good instant!
great capture (from below )!

In your notes, isn't it a little funny mistake?
a frog is een kikker, nee?
a fox is een vos :)



Hello Thijs,
a splendid capture of this young Maned Wolf taken with veryh good sharpness and great timing, very beautiful Natural colours
Best regards

Hello Thijs,
There are never enough photos of this incredibly beautiful animal and for you to capture a momment that displays a natural behavior of it is even more rewarding. I had the wonderful opportunity to get very close to these animals and photograph them, they are incredible to see in person I have to say. The slenderness and the height aspect of them really prove they are quite different from other canids. Anyway nicely taken. :)
