We called this Painted Wolf (aka African Wild Dog) (Lycaon pictus) the "Pale Male" because of his light coloration. Here he crosses a stream, following the alpha female. When they are on the move, the Painted Wolves tend to take exactly the same path as the individual in front of them - whether in the woods, open ground, or the water. Makes it easy to set up and pre-focus, even if you miss the leader.
