After we unloaded the mekoros (canoes) and set up camp in the Okavango Delta of Botswana, our guides cooked dinner over an open fire. Night fell as we finished eating. We sat around the fire looking up at the stars, and then the guides told us it was time to go to bed. “Do you ever sleep out under the stars?,” my friend John Pendleton asked one of the guides. “No, never,” he replied. “Why not?” John asked, “It’s so beautiful.” The guide replied simply “Because I do not want to be eaten.”
I took this photo of our two mekoros at sunset on the first night of a safari in the Okavango Delta. Even in this peaceful image the animals asserted control. When I set up my tripod to take the photo, I was swarmed by a huge cloud of mosquitoes. I shot a few quick images and then retreated away from the water’s edge.
