A Battle of Stripes On the Flats of the Ngorongoro Crater

What a scene to Photograph!

Unfortunately, a very sunny and hot day,
maybe around 88 F, with a lot of heat wave rising between us 
and these 2 warriors in battle.

The encounter lasted a good 5 minutes, biting, chasing, and climbing
all over each other... Exciting to watch, and also to photograph.

You can see how dry and dusty the crater was during this
 time of year, lots of sunshine has burnt out the grasses, as 
the dust was a factor on this day.

This image took a bit of extra sharpening on the animals, 
but the 2560 x 1440 copy looks pretty cool, even with 
the distortion caused by the heatwave. Someday I 
will have this printed very large for my office wall. The 
experience of witnessing this all natural war is something we 
all will never forget.
