When we arrived at the waterhole, none of the usual visitors like Oryx or Springbuck present.When I saw all the jittery Jackal I knew we just entered a "boxing ring" A park official told us of the broken water-pump and the difficulty to get parts in this remote area. The next moment all hell broke loose and the dominate Jackal try to rule for the last drops of water.

1) Be patient, animals are very patient too
2) If you realize something unusual, try to sum up the situation for possible action.
3)Be ready, finger on the shutter and eye in the viewfinder, searching for a shot the whole time.
4) Keep in mind the seasons of the year.
Summers: Water and shade main priority for animals.
Winter - early sun rays and food very early morning. A keeping this in mind will assist you in predict animal behavior for good action photos.
