The Equatorial Homesick Blues

One of my favorite shots from last Autumns safari. It is a scene from Lake Manyara National Park. I love it because it is messy. The hippos are messy, and muddy. Dust obscures the herd of zebra. Birds, Hippos and antelope are all interacting, and the antelope and zebra at least are trying to avoid the tree climbing lions that stubbornly refused to put in an appearance. The only day we didn't see Lions in Tanzania! But most of all, it looks like Africa, and that is what I miss the most!
