Antelope snare

An alarming find – a large (animal) snare blocking my path! Made from incredibility strong wire. Does not look so expertly positioned now – perhaps because of the recent fire, and / or me touching it.

All that was left!

I took it with me and handed it in.

Mhembwe (Duiker)

I was more startled than this mhembwe – it was a case of point the camera in the right general direction and keep the shutter pressed down! This what came out:

Startled mhembwe bolts away at top speed


And bounding through the Shona stone circle

Probably a once-in-a-lifetime event – to see one of these and to have the camera in my hand and switched on. It was likely hiding out from the very recent bushfire
