The trip to Garissa, Kenya was not all work. The last leg of the trip was spent shopping in Masai markets and heading to the south western corner of Kenya to Masai Mara.

The wildebeest migration from Tanzania was just underway in late June. Thousands and thousands of wildebeest will migrate from the Seregetti in Tanzania to Masai Mara. The vast vegetation of the savannah is what draws the wildebeest and one of their traveling partners, the zebra.

This fella seemed to be trying to hide from my camera, he seems a little camera shy. I dont think he realizes that little strand of savannah grass is doing nothing in keeping him from my lens.

    Stunning lighting Scott! What a rich image.

  • Thank you. I love the solitude of this shot. During the wildebeest migration there are thousands and thousands of wildebeest moving to Masai Mara. I like having caught this one all alone in the savannah grass. Thanks again.

    Yes I see you, but don’t care to see you any closer.

  • He was a little close but not aggressive. Wildebeest seem like they are always on the look out for the big cats. These creatures can become dinner at any given moment.

    Nice shot. THis fella looks awefully old. Hope the Big Cats don’t get him.

  • Thank you. Interestingly he was also separate from the herd. There seemed to be no apparent danger but one never knows what is lurking in the bush.

    I see you added me to your watchlist. I swear I was on it before. For some reason you lose people on your watchlist once in awhile. Thanks for adding me again.

    Scott .. I know!! It’s so frustrating!!! I lost Dana Horne and just discovered it yesterday, too … and about a month or so ago I discovered several people had fallen off … I think my evil twin must have a warped sense of humor!!! Thank heavens I’ve read other people complain about the same thing or I’d really be worried!!!
