When going on an African safari, it’s always the big animals that get all the attention. The big 5. But I was quite amused by the playful jackals that seemed to appear every time the vehicle was moving slowly.
I think they were just as curious as I was. I photographed this one in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. Since they can be quick on their feet, I set my ISO up very high to allow me a super fast shutter speed. Although when I made this image he actually stood still for a moment – just watching – as was I. I had my aperture wide open at f/2.8 to blur the background.
