We found one of the packs because we heard a female calling the pack. She's been caught in a wire snare and had managed to get free, but you'll see from the photo the resulting wound.5a4b5eb829348_AWD5.thumb.jpg.df47b58397ba26d02ca913b27662a3d2.jpg

 

The pack heard the female and went to her.

We alerted staff of the Zambian Carnivore Program (ZCP), who came out the following day, when they darted the female, removed the snare and cleaned up the wound. We heard several days later that she was recovering well.

Morning Hunt. On the tarmac road in the Timbavati. A group of 5 were looking for breakfast. 25 km later they were still looking...

Last year we saw more than 30 individual dogs on 3 drives in the Timbavati. Yesterday on my first drive we saw the first dogs that the team had seen for 3 months. Just as last year a few decided to annoy a wildebeest.

It was nearly dark and I must say I was pretty happy with the performance of the D500 with a little noise reduction in Lightroom afterwards. 80-400mm lens @ 160mm, f/5.0, 1/1250 sec, ISO 6400.  I'm trying to use manual mode with auto ISO on this trip  and generally quite pleased with the results.
