In September of this year, we were fortunate to spend several days in the Serengeti in Tanzania. This time of year marks the annual wildebeast migration and the famous Mara river crossings, so the density of wildlife was amazing. Tenderness and tragedy, birth and death co-arising everywhere. Almost beyond comprehension. For a variety of reasons, I've chosen not to post some of the more graphic "kill" scenes, but you might notice that the lions and cheetah still have blood on their lovely faces.
The soundtrack is "Yesu Olchori Lai (choir)" from the album Rhythm of the Maasi, available on iTunes (used here under fair use rules, no rights inferred nor intended.)
