love it! he looks so serious here. these are such cool creatures. it's a shame they're so seriously threatened in the wild.. it also shocks me that so few people even know what this is; or when i say a dhole people look at me like i'm making up animals. but aside from all that, this is a wonderful shot. the location of the dhole compared to the overall photo and amount of background image involved is great. it's much better more to one side than in the center; for this image at least as that's definitely not always the case. the colors and lighting are also really nice. it seems like everything aligned perfectly for this shot.

This animal looks just like my dog Blaze (he's a Shiba Inu).
I swear they could be cousins!  LOL  :D (Big Grin)

A splendid photo that seems to capture the thoughts of the Dhole, as if he is also contemplating why we observe him. The Australian Dingo (wild dog) MIGHT have bee descended from the a common ancestor to the Dhole, because I think see a similarity of colouring and body shape between the two.

So adorable. I've recently noticed that I'm becoming quite addicted to these beautiful wild dogs. I want to just grab one and cuddle it until the end of time..
I don't see that happening any time soon though.

I can wish though. cx

This picture is gorgeous. It's colors are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing it! c:

He's too adorable for his own good. Though the way he's looking at you makes me wonder what kind of plot he is thinking in his handsome head. ^_^
