Wildebeest leap of faith

Wildebeest leap of faith

Masai Mara, Kenya

The compulsion to keep on the move following the rains in search of fresh sweet grass induces some seemingly foolhardy behaviour amongst certain Wildebeest. This site was a less than ideal crossing point as it involved steep banks and a stretch of fast-flowing water with a number of large crocs patrolling nearby. Nevertheless a number of animals crossed here without mishap.
