Every time I go to Masai Mara, I try to do something new in photography. In one of my trip I was concentrating mainly on panning shots. And this time when I decided to visit Mara was during the migration season. I know if I wait for sometime I would definitely witness either the wildebeest or the zebras running. Accordingly I decided and stationed myself near a crossing place and I could see a large number of wildebeest and zebras waiting to cross the river. After some hours of waiting finally the wildebeest started jumping in the river one by one and crossed. When the first group crossed they started running towards where I had positioned my vehicle. I waited to isolate a small group to show the pain effect in its real view and finally I was able to capture this picture.

Since last few years nature photography is a major part of my life and I am loving it but let me make it clear that this is my love not my profession. The Big Cats are my favorites, especially the largest in cats The Tiger, my all time sweetheart. Their elegance, the way they play in water, the way they roar, their proud walk.. every thing make me their die hard fan. We all can learn a lot when we spend time in nature and see the life circle of any tangible living thing in this beautiful world. I am sure this will help anyone to become a better person who understands the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the stability of our eco system.
