As the week rolls on we are up to 'J' in our ABC challenge and I chose to draw a jackel. I took this reference photo on the last day of my safari in the Serengeti, Tanzania. The little jackel was resting quietly in the shade of a small acacia tree and I remember how he watched us, ready to move on if need be. I was quite subdued all day knowing it was my last and that I had had such a wonderful time and all good things have to come to an end. It is nice to recall those feelings during the drawing process.
