African Wild Dog Next to Termite Mound I came across this pack of wild dog just before sunset.  Just before we were going to head back to camp, one of the males walked in front of a red termite mound, which was a blazing red in the last minutes of direct sunlight.

African Wild Dog Next to Termite Mound

I came across this pack of wild dog just before sunset. Just before we were going to head back to camp, one of the males walked in front of a red termite mound, which was a blazing red in the last minutes of direct sunlight.
