I realised today that this is the first year since 2006 that we haven’t been to Africa. I’m not really sure how I feel about it, my 600mm lens has sat inside a case doing nothing the entire year. I’m happy that I took 5 weeks off work last year to go. I hope I can return next year.
This shot was taken with the 600mm lens, these two jackals seemed to be fighting for the affections of a lady. It’s funny how a photo freezes action and even remembering the event in my mind now it kind of unfolds in slow motion, the reality of it is very different this scuffle only lasted a few seconds before one of them ran off.
