16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Flying at the Infamous Mara River Crossing
Wildebeest cross the Mara River in Arusha, Tanzania. The night before we noticed a huge amount of wildebeest gathering. We decided to rise very early to be there before sunrise with the hope that they would start crossing with perfect light conditions. And so they did.
