I like the warm sidelight and the action you captured with its tongue in the water. Very nice image.

Nice light and good detail as the jackal takes a welcome drink. A touch more room around, especially at the bottom, would be better for me, but still nice enough as presented and well timed to get the lapping tongue extended.

Interesting and different perspective- very nicely done...agree with Carol, though, about giving more space. Also appreciate that a moment captured can't always be a perfect frame, and it is a terrific moment.
