Thank you so much for the c'c on the Fox upload - much appreciated.
Thought I'll share another shot from our safari in South Africa (feels like a distant memory now Sad)we saw this Female Hyena shortly after we encountered the wild dogs she was making her way to the den - a drainage pipe under the road, just stoped and looked at us for a few seconds and I managed to get this shot - hope you like it gray

Afternoon Gray
This is excellent, the tones in this capture are fantastic, you have done well to seperate from B/G, their camouflage is so good it is hard to spot them in the bush.

Regards

Trev.

A grand shot with very good detail - can't help but think they have got a menacing expression at the best of times - Ina

I think she is very brave here Gray with the grin that she is giving to you! maybe a tasty morsel from you? well captured and great to see with the greenery behind her too, as really brings her out

Cracking good shot Graham. You have done so well to use the green bush as the BG, this does give her so much more emphasise; might have been a little difficult against the rest as she is so much of the same colour as the ground and leaf litter.

A great shot Gray - plenty of good detail - see that you only used a 18-135mm lens - good jopb you were in the car with those teeth

Great capture Graham - I always think these look really mean and sly and you have captured the expression perfectly.
