PALM GROVE DINGO

DINGO

CANIS LUPUS

STATUS: VULNERABLE

Having spent an hour following this dingo, I waited until she went to lay in the cool shade of a grove of small palms. I wanted to capture an intimate portrait of this rare wild dog in its forest habitat, hoping it may change people’s perceptions of this species.
