Brilliant .. my take on it is that the young suitor is coming up on the rails ... what I think is the female is fighting off an unwanted male ... he is not looking at her but at the wolf emerging

Behind The Lens

Location
South Africa Kgalagadi Transfrontier park
Time
Mid Morning
Lighting
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.
Equipment
Nikon D700 500 mm lense and convertor of 1.7 FL of 850mm Bean bag from a vehicle
Inspiration
The amount of Jackal present let me realize I need to be patient I might get a shot. Because it was so dry and in peak summer - the dust made a perfect picture and assists me in portray the drama and intensity of the fight.
Editing
Cropping Minor saturation and etc
In my camera bag
Nikon equipment
Feedback
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.
