18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Dingo and the sea

Followed this dingo to the top of the sand dunes at the Myall Lakes National Park in Australia, where he sat down watching the sea. Initially we thought he is a stray dog. Upon closer inspection, we realised he's a dingo, a rare sight in Australia. Dingoes are treated as pests and many of them are killed.
