The Wild Dogs walking along a river stand out due to their attractive patterned coat. Shortly before the sunset, these Painted dogs were on the go to hunt. That wildlife photograph is captured with extended exposure time. Which means we use a slow shutter speed while panning that creates this beautiful soothing motion blur effect.

Wild Dogs Or Painted Dogs

The African Wild Dog we know as well as hunting Painted Dogs. These persistent carnivores relentlessly chase down their prey. Until their victim succumbs to exhaustion, and the Wild Dog begins to eat their prey alive. Unlike larger carnivores, the wild dog does not suffocate their prey with a ferocious bite to the neck.

They do have the highest hunting success rate out of any carnivore, with a whopping 80% of their hunts being successful. That is due to the coordinated nature of the pack. Their astounding intelligence and their ability to communicate efficiently pay off. A female will rule until she dies.

The African Wild Dog, Lycaon pictus, is on the IUCN list as endangered. Sightings of these beautiful animals are incredibly rare.

      The African soil is often in a beautiful red. In this Wild dog photograph, the sunset colors helped as well.
      Thank you, Sue.
      Cheers Anette
