Screen vs. Print Quality
The water holes in Etosha Pan in northern Namibia are a lifeline for thousands of plains game. Etosha is a harsh place with sparse rainfall, little permanent water and poor soils. Visiting the few waterholes can have a high price, as many have a resident pride of lions. Consequently, there is always a high level of stress in the plains game coming in for a drink. This picture is actually about the dust and the dove: doves and sand grouse fly in to drink at the waterholes, and often panic the tense animals into a stampede. The dramatic light in the picture is the result of dust from a stampede just before sunset. While zebras are normally hyperactive animals, always biting, kicking and generally irritating each other; these three appear quite stoic, this is simply due to heat stress and thirst.
