Thanks David for taking the time to read...and many thanks for the nice words regarding the photos. I think you can tell that I like telling stories both in prose and pix.

What an interesting story Eric. And don't kid yourself - these are all very nice photos. Since you are telling a story, the lack of eye contact in some of the shots is immaterial. You do do this well ~Ron

Very interesting images and story. Be as long winded as you like, images with some sort of story to go along are the best threads in my opinion, thanks.

...The photos, I hope, tell a story and are not presented as great photography...

Eric,
The FM posts I enjoy the most are the ones documenting unique natural history phenomena. Your photos and narrative are a great informative combination, which makes great photography by my standards--beyond any technical measures of the photos by themselves. Thanks very much for sharing these. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Thanks Ken...much appreciated and it makes you wonder how many more stories like this one plays out with no watchful human eyes to view and document it.

Thank you Ron I was thrilled to be able to see a wild dog period, but having the interaction was icing on the cake. I really wished I could have seen the puppies begging for food. I have one shot of it but without anything in the dog's stomach it the begging went for naught.

Thanks, and I often wonder if most of my stuff just gets tuned out...I suppose by some it does but nice to know
there are some who enjoy my style.

Very much appreciated John. The 1000 words to a picture is nice and sometimes true but never gets the back story which often is just as interesting. I love to learn and as much to impart knowledge...some say to a fault

Eric,
This really is an amazing story. Seeing interspecific cooperation at this level is a fairly unique (though not entirely unheard of) phenomenon. Normally something like this is parasitic or commensalistic at best, but from your description, it sounds as if the jackals are exhibiting a mutualistic behavior. I have yet to see wild dogs in Africa, so your wildlife photo-essay is really fueling my need to see Botswana or South Africa where their populations appear to be thriving.

Your words and images were definitely worth more than 5 minutes of my attention!
cheers,
bruce

They have such striking markings and when you get them in nice light they are quite beautiful. Thanks Rob.

Hi Bruce...I had read about this wild dog prior to my trip and was hoping to catch a glimpse of it. And while I didn't get to see a kill and the sharing of food that goes along with it, following along on a hunt was really fun. The jackals, interesting enough, are still a bit wary as they wouldn't let the dog get close to the pups while they were in the den...some yelps, nips and the dog got the message. It would sit 30 or so meters away but as soon as it got up to hunt the male jackal would tag along...fascinating, really fascinating. And even more so that the dog has this relationship with two different jackal families. So glad you liked the story and pix.
Eric
