today’s image is about storytelling. The annual migration of wildebeest across the Serengeti including a life and death crossing of the Mara River.
the distant tree is out of focus to the extent that it’s clear the giraffe is the main focus of attention, but the tree still has enough form that it is immediately identifiable.
a wildebeest calf, having successfully crossed the Mara River, climbing to the top of the steep river bank where he will now need to locate his mother amid the confusion. The mother and calf locating each other is critical as the calf cannot survive on its own and no other wildebeest is likely to “adopt” a stray.
