“Prey”


TANZANIA Through Harold’s Lens:

Slowly our Land Rover rolled down the dusty dirt road through the Serengeti of Maasai country. As we were meandering around a curve I spotted a herd of sheep and goats.

Then I looked behind them.

Spotting this little Maasai carrying the baby lamb all alone on the veld I called “halt”.

Leaping from the Land Rover, I ran about 10 yards, kneeled down and fired my Nikon.

    • Thank you. Out in the wild. Always looking. Always listening. Always protecting. At a very young age, she is in charge of protecting the family’s food bin. Life is always a challenge out of the wild veld.

    • Memo, thanks for your comments. Before the crop, there is actually more to the shot including two of the goat’s legs all the way to the hoofs. I originally had it cropped that way but somehow I felt I lost the up close/personal/warm/fuzzy feeling of the image.

    • Thank you very much for your nice comments. I absolutely love photography and always have. For years I was out of it. Then my daughters bought me my first digital camera and soon I was off again. Good thing too. I shoot so many images that I would go broke using film.
