Very nice, Fanie. I don't know that reserve at all. Is it Big 5?

Super, please tell me are Jackals bigger or smaller than a Fox?

To me it looks bigger! TIA

Thanks Mike, I think they are pretty much in the same league, although the jackal may be slightly bigger.

Amazing that he sat down so close to you. I like the bokah and the shallow DOF. The direction he's looking is good, makes it seem like he was posing for you ("turn towards your left, I think your right side profile would be ideal.."). I would clone out that strand of grass that's intersecting his jaw.

According to my Sabi book, Black-backed Jackal are around 38 cm tall & 6-10 Kg, so about half the height & 1/7th the weight of a Hyena .. or about fox size .. ;)

 

cheers, Maurice
