Photographer's comments:

I had dream of shooting The Great migration-"The greatest show on the earth by mother nature".This image was captured on the bank of Mara river near observation hill at Masai Mara, Kenya,Africa.I had kept camera on the bean bag at window panel to photograph this herd of about 10,000 wildebeest & zebras before they crossed Mara river. The sky was overcast and light was poor. In dusty atmosphere, evening light was perfect for this environmental wildlife photo. Tokina AT-X 80-400mm is small, easy to use and handle telephoto lens. Thank you Tokina for capturing this magic moment, which was once in a life time experience.
