I went to Bulgaria in February 2014 with the goal of taking photos of the shy Golden Jackal. I had hoped for winter, but the weather gods turned against us and we got spring temperatures with lots of fog making life difficult for us.

Still, I got home with some decent pictures like this. It was a Golden Jackal pair that entered the area in front of the hide just as some of the fog started to lift. It made for a nice setting with the dew in the grass together with the fog in the background.
