Juvenile Hyena on a Wet Morning

 

Photographed at 7:10 am on 18 February, 2017 in Kruger National Park, South Africa, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 250, 1/400 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

Not far inside Kruger National Park's Kruger Gate is a culvert which hyena's use as a den. We'd stopped to observe them as moderately heavy rain fell.

 

This juvenile hyena exhibited considerable curiosity, walking up the embankment to inspect the vehicle, thereby facilitating this portrait.

 

A friendly family from northern New Jersey was in the vehicle, the two sons expressing their delight at observing hyenas at such close range.
