Patience is a Virtue

On a particularly challenging "Ferrari Safari" adventure where the goal was to stay in the wildly moving jeep at all costs, I captured this shot of the Southern Carmine Bee Eater on the hunt to its next meal right as we left a herd of approximately 300 wild buffalo to track a pride of lions that had just been spotted nearby. Taking a shot of anything from a bumpy moving jeep offroad is near impossible. Catching this shot is one in a million.
