The resurrection of this old thread of absolutely superlative action shots by @Bush dog inspired me to start this thread.

Another one of @Bush dog's action sequences:

Here are a few more. Very difficult to photograph a full sequence. Video is much easier but this thread is only for still photographs.

Thank you for the topic. These are amazing sequences. I remember some of them, but I totally missed others. It is great to see them now.

@AKR1 Thank you for highlighting some of the incredible photography which Safaritalk members have shared with us and continue to do so. It is an inspiration to be able to look at and learn from these examples. When you think of the images one sees in expensive photography books, and then the images here, I often think the quality of those uploaded to ST is of the same standard.

 

Perhaps we should produce a photography book the profits of which could go to tangible wildlife conservation efforts?

I've only just seen this series from @africaaddict of wild dogs fighting with a hyena watched on by a hippo in the river.

Not Africa but @Shivang Mehta captures a great sequence of a tiger cub making his first kill in Ranthambhore and I can't leave the India images subforum without mentioning @dickysingh's incredible action series of a face off between two tigers and a sloth bear.

If you want to see action in South Luangwa, the best time for action shots will be September - October, when the animals have concentrated around the permanent waterholes and Luangwa River. Predators are more conspicuous around that period than at any other time of the Year. Pics: petergeraerdts.com @ www.trackandtrailrivercamp.com

@Peter Geraerdts - I was under the impression that the dogs were easier to find in the green season in SNLP?  and less prolific in the dry months due to the Lion activity? I have never been so curious with your thoughts - Thanks!

As for Wild dogs, this statement is correct we see them more now (wet season)  then we see them in the dry season...but for Lion and Leopard you will see more hunting action in the dry season. Dogs do come and go all the time but indeed with too many lions around they will move out of the area again. These shots were all taken in the dry season, Sept -Oct - Nov!
