The heavily pregnant hyena (Crocuta crocuta) on the left seems to be eyeballing the photographer for breakfast potential. Fortunately there was distance between us. These two were part of a small pack disturbed in a gully during the early morning, when the rising sun was still casting red to orange light.

Digital Wildlife Photographic Tips
Consider what the subject of your photograph will be, zoom in and out, compose, fire many shots. Wildlife photography does not always present the option to change your angle of view, it is often an opportunist shot, so make the best of your capture angle by carefully composing the subject in the frame and then using different focal lengths, keeping mind what the subject of your shot is. Most importantly keep shooting! Some wildlife photographers will consume many memory cards in a single day.
