Yet another of my Botswana photos - probably my absolute favorite close shot. Those ears, and those eyes! <3

Copy-pasted from the other photos:
"So, as some of you may know, I recently went to Africa.
I had been wanting to for some time, and we (Kikivuli and I) were fortunate enough to find some like-minded individuals to go with!
As is obvious to anyone who knows me, my main personal objective, above all else, was to find African wild dogs in the wild. They're exceedingly rare, and are the most endangered carnivore in Africa (along with the Ethiopian wolf), so sightings are quite infrequent. We attempted to maximize our chances by extending our trip for several days after the main group trip, and I'm really happy we did, 'cause that's when we finally found some!
It was a wonderful sighting, and I took many many photos. I'll probably write a journal about it sometime in the future. But I figured I'd share some of my favorite photos with you all!
If anyone's interested in a print of any of the ones I post, let me know. They were taken in 6000x4000 resolution, so they will look quite nice as posters. :)"

      Thank you! To be honest, I'm a complete beginner at it. I hadn't done much other than 'point and shoot' with a camera phone before my Africa trip, so I had to quickly learn what kind of things I could do with my ACTUAL camera. Fortunately I had some lucky shots!
