Danger at the Waterhole

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

Early morning. Suddenly the sound of thundering hooves. Water! They need water…

But wait…. Thirsty as the Wildebeest are, they hesitate at the water’s edge…

With good reason. They know he’s there…

And so, thirsty but cautious and patient, they’ll keep their distance. Made later?  The day becomes unbearably hot…will the lion leave?

I returned at sunset.

Yes, they did get to the water…at a price…

    This post tells a story and I like that. The pictures are stunning. I really like the picture of the sunset because the brightness of the sky makes me smile in the inside.
