I would love to see that!
Great moment captured. And it's been captured well. A lot of movement has been photographed well and with good quality.
Well done,

Hi Marek,
Welcome to Trek Nature. This is a very well composed and exposed wild-life shot. I can feel the action going on there. Bravo and thanks for sharing.
All the best,

Hi Marek,
Great action shot with the gnou passing a river bed. Good composition.
Was it dangerous from where you took the photo?

Hi Marek

Great atmospheric shot, the dust creates a great impression and the wildebeest jumiping in the bottom left gives a great finish.


Wow! There is a lot of action here!, Marek. I like how the animals disappear into the dust. Welcome to TN. I am looking forward to your next posts.

Love the one jumping out of the bottom corner... to me that one animal makes the shot.

Hi Marek
Great action. Nice shot and composition.
Best wishes

Hello Marek,
What a great moment to be there on the right time. Very well captured in a great composition. Beautiful atmosphere. I wish I could hear the Gnous going down to the river.
It must be very impressive.

Hi Marek,
magnifique photo de la migration des gnous.
J'étais au Kenya début septembre et il y avait des centaines de gnous qui flottaient morts sur la rivière mara... Ces traversées ne sont pas de tout repos, c'est les croco qui sont contents...
La poussière rend la photo surréaliste.
