    Hi Sanjeev, good sharpness & detail, but my comments on the previous apply to this too. If it was a Lion then I doubt it would have survived, perhaps if alone a Wild dog, but not if the Clan was about. Like the head turn and caught in mid trot. Again, nice to see you upping the ISO.

    Hi Sanjeev - Steve, Alison and I watched some pretty rough horse play between adults and hyena cubs including one adult continuously biting and pulling a youngster's leg, even dragging it by the leg so the injury could be from that sort of thing too. I agree with Steve that the image is a bit dark. Keep them coming. Just take your time with the pp though.

    TFS,
    Rachel

    Dear Sanjeev,

    Another super capture. And yes it breaks my heart to see this little one in pain but I know they are a resilient species with an immune system second to none. I really hope the wound did not get infected.

    Great techs again, nice work in the field. I would just like to ask you to please spare a few moments to have another look at Steve's RP on your previous post, a couple of tweaks here would make a difference. A little too dark and especially on the face, easy fix. Cannot get enough of your hyena shots, let us have more please!

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea
