Great Cormorant, Lake Baringo Kenya

A Great Cormorant dries it's wings. Unlike most waterfowl, cormorant feathers are not oily and they don't repel water, allowing the cormorant to dive freely underwater in search of fish. However, they must dry off before being able to fly easily again.

Silver Backed Jackal, Masai Mara Kenya

The Silver-Backed Jackal- AKA Black-Backed Jackal is monogamous, usually seen hunting in pairs, and as a species is considered quite ancient with little morphological change all the way back to the Pleistocene which ended some 12,000 years ago. Goes to show; if it works well, don't evolve it!
