These were all taken with a £100 point and click so they won't be as nice as some of the others here...

African wild dogs at Kruger NP. Apparently there are under 400 of them in South Africa so we were VERY lucky to see them.

Nice shots Csaba. The wild dogs are becoming rarer and rarer and ppl who sight them are considered to be really lucky so great job. They kinda have the same rep as coyotes in north america and ppl kill them just for fun thinking they kill their chickens and what-not... on top of that however though they get attacked and killed by most other preditors as well.... they really do have a tough life.

One animal I would love to photograph some day is a white shark.

They're smart and mischievous little things...that 'innocent' or cute look is a put-on...they know what they look like and use it to their advantage, so you don't go chasing them with a shoe when they knock over your trash can every night!

Cool shot Popo looks like he has intent in his eye.

No fooling me with that masked face Zack.
Like big rats with brains,braun and very able hands to operate with!!
We have been overrun with them here since most of the trappers have been harrassed out of keeping the population in check and they are now spreading distemper around to everything else. :roll:

Went to Port Lympne for the first time today... not the most photo friendly layout. This was one of the few shots I was really happy with today.

This is the second time I have had an encounter like this with a fox. The previous one was along the Alaska Highway up in the Yukon. This one was down a country road.

While driving down a road I saw a fox casually hunting along the side of the road. My slowing down didn't seem to bother him so staying in my car I just slowly moved along following him. In this case I barely kept track of him due to the ditch and high grass but he did catch a small rodent and dodged off into a bush to eat it. I could barely make out part of the tail so rather than frightening him off I waited in the car. To my surprise, once he was done eating, he moved out of the bush and high grass and layed down directly in front of the vegetation giving me a perfect view. It wasn't a perfectly sunny day but I still like the shots...
