Beautiful child with proud mother. While traveling in Botswana, I took a mobile safari from Maun to Victoria Falls. We stopped to replenish supplies in a small town and this girl and her mother were getting their hair done outside the supermarket. She was definitely a bit petrified of getting her photo taken by a "white" stranger.

I have to admit that I was sort of forced into this composition as the lens I was using could only open to 50mm. As I was on safari in Kenya in Masai Mara, we drove passed a dead hartebeest. It seemed to have died of unnatural biological causes as nothing had preyed on it, not even vultures in the nearby tree.
