Because of an abundant wet season, there was a lot of food (and relatively speaking) a lot of water on offer in the desert while I was there last April.

The photo challenge topic of the week is peek; showing just a glimpse of your subject.  It’s a great topic to have while going through safari photos, as sometimes, the best you get on a sighting is a brief glimpse of the animal that you have been tracking.

On this morning, we followed the meandering tracks of a lioness until we came across a very agitated female giraffe.  It didn’t take long to find the drag marks into the bushes, and then find the lion with her tiny calf.
