Description: A herd of Wildebeest look toward the camera as they are caught in a sudden downpour.

Story from behind the lens: We had just arrived in the Mara Triangle, my first time visiting there and we were caught in a sudden downpour. We first photographed some Cheetah, who seemed unaffected by the rain, but then had to close the window opening as the rain became too heavy. When we found this herd of wildebeest, though, of course we stopped and shot under the plastic covers, getting soaked ourselves. These guys did not seem pleased with the much needed rain, but we were all thrilled to get some dramatic weather shots.
