The long-tailed widow bird must be one of the most frustrating birds to photograph... due in part to it being so stunningly photogenic, while at the same time, incredibly shy. I snuck up on this one... and managed to catch a shot before it danced away through the grass.
I asked this hyena to smile for the camera and this is what I got! It was actually picking up the scent of the warthog kill it was hoping to get a piece of. Little did it know that it would have to take a ticket and get in line behind the 7 lions and 14 other hyena crowding the scene!
At school we used to have to wait at the "zebra crossing" for the scholar patrol team to blow the whistle and let you cross to the other side of the road. This shot was taken as an actual zebra was crossing the road. Instead of focusing on the zebra itself, I decided to frame the patterns on its side.
