Vultures line up to get their chance at feeding on a nearby carcass.
Elephant Mom and Baby
Some of the best light of the whole trip in the Mara - just before the rains came.

Eyes of the Leopard
This Serengeti leopard comes down from his cache of a Thompson's gazelle (safely stashed in the tree) at the last light of the day.
In the early morning light, numerous zebra were out grazing; as the sun came up, they moved further back into the forest.
Vervet monkeys groom each other on the morning light as we leave Lake Nakuru
After bathing in the river, the elephants passed by with their little ones, nabbing the occasional date from the palm trees along the way.
The crisp geometric patterns of the reticulated giraffe produce a "crazy paving" appearance.

Grevy's Zebra Mare and Foal
A zebra of dry, semi-desert regions, grevy's zebras are able to survive on less water than other species, hence Samburu makes ideal habitat.
Flooded Lake Nakuru
Once home to hundreds of thousand of flamingos, flooded Lake Nakuru is now home to a handful of them. Shot taken at sunset.
Lappet-Faced Vulture and Friends
The lappet-faced vulture is the largest vulture in Africa.
The whistling acacia has long white spines and black galls which are home to colonies of ants. The ants provide protection for the acacia by swarming over the nose and tongue of visitors such as this young giraffe. A giraffe will stay and feed for a few moments before moving on.
Before Lake Nakuru flooded two-three years ago, it was home to hundreds of thousands of flamingos. The salinity and water quality are no longer good enough to support the food source flamingos need, so they have moved off to other alkaline lakes in East Africa.
The warthog is the most common of the African pigs. It holds its tail vertically while running.
Warthog for Dinner
The lionesses made this kill earlier in the morning. Once the male has claimed it for his own, he will not allow them to come back and feed.
