"Black-backed jackal and pup. This was one of the first photographs I got in 2012. Well-fed jackal pups and their mother were on one side of the road with a male springbok on the other side. The pups, as playful as they are, decided to cross the road to harass the territorial springbok and were chased away easily. The pups went straight to their mother, with a complaint perhaps. The mother then decided lead the pups across the road, walking cautiously towards the much bigger springbok. This photograph shows the cautious walk of the mother, who knows the dangers, and a pup’s bold walk behind its ‘most-powerful-mom-in-the-world’."
