Callie, your note on that one is a perfect exemple of what a note should be in my point of view. Lot of interesting informations. It goes perfectly with your title. I like the composition and pose of the picture. Well done.

I always read your notes with delight, Callie! You have a knack for spot on titles and anecdotic comments, adding a lively content to your photos. The long focal feeling gives here the impression this shot has been stolen to... a big thief. It looks like a paparazzi shot, but the Jackal shows in his eyes that he spotted you! What an attitude, cautiously drinking, looking on the side. Superb catch, looks like a rare moment.

Nou wonder hulle hoekom ek my seun Jakkals noem - Hy het genoeg streke om een te wees. This is not only a superb image, but the note is worthy of being posted on its own, but Rob wont like it :)
Very well done and thanks for posting.

Very interesting stories from your note, Callie.
It has really the underhand air and crafty one, this animal.
A really great post.
Opnieuw een prachtig dier deze Coyote Callie, en juist op een moment dat hij komt drinken, de zon moet zeer hoog staan want de schaduw is zeer klein, mooie kleuren heeft dit dier, maar hij zal wel zijn haar verliezen, maar zijn streken niet. Begrijpt u dat Callie dit laatste?
Callie ik wens u en uw familie een voorspoedig 2005.

Excellent title and story Callie! Superb capture - everything in jackal's pose on your picture said - 'I'm a careful thief'.
Great post, congrats!

Hi Callie. Beautiful shot of the jackal, with a very interesting posture and a nice compo that leaves space in the direction that he is facing. The water puddle on the dirt floor provides just the right amount of compositional interest without unduly distracting from the main subject. Again a quality wildlife photo and great notes. Happy New Year to you.

Well, he does seem lean & mean, this chap ;-))
Great capture, well lit, good POV. The shot has a bit of the "lone rider" feel about it ;-)

Hi Callie, I am enjoying following your trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. I can look at this Jackal and feel so sorry for him. He's so skinny and thirsty and no doubt hungry too. Surely you are wrong... No I know you're not! It is survival of the fittest, eh?

LIEFLIK!! What a lovely shot. The shot captures the mood and setting perfectly. You can almost see what the jackal's thinking.
Great colour, composition and clarity.
Thanks for posting and adding the interesting note.
