Regal dog

This is one of my favourite shots, combing the colours of the bush, the intensity and profile of this wonderful animal and a appealing bokeh. It was getting dark when we saw this pack and had already started enjoying our sundowners and snacks, when they appeared and we abandoned the snacks and table and gave chase - when we came back our biltong was still there! They had been stalking a Kudu who ran through the clearing in which we where located and luckily got away leaving us with some good shots of individual members of this pack such as this pose. Canon 1D IV, 300mm f/2.8L II, 1/250 sec @f2.8 ISO 800 and evaluative metering. I processed using aperture, reduced highlights, added some colour and definition and cropped for effect.
