How can this be explained? - Tanzania Sunset

We had such an amazing day.  First thing in the morning, on 
our way out of the luxury tent camp in the Northern Serengeti 
we saw an awesome Yellow-billed Stork.
From there, some lions on a kill, then an 
awesome Raptor in a tree.

Black Rhinos as close as 30 yards, Hippos fighting, Crocodiles,
a Wildebeest Crossing, a family of Cheetahs on the move, Vultures
and Storks on a kill, and so much more!

Once in a while, you just have a great day in the 
field.  My friend and guest Wayne Crumm just kept saying "Wow!"  
I had just finished firing at least 600 images of the cheetah 
family.  Then, as we are all exhausted, eagerly
looking forward to a superb meal back at the 
camp and over the next hill we run into this!!

The timing could not have been more perfect, the sun was just
a bit bright when we arrived.  Using several focal lengths, I was 
able to capture several images and views of this amazing scene.

It was late in the day, we were still 45 minutes from camp, 
but we hung on to the end.  A good solid 12 hours of shooting, 
and 2,800 images for this day of October 23rd, 2011.

I tried a pano using this same file as the first image 
below, I am not sure which style I like best, but the 
first shot fits nicely on my iMac.

More images soon!
