Not all #naturephotos are happy ones with...

Not all #naturephotos are happy ones with cute animals or beautiful sunsets. In 2003, I was shooting an adventure race in the #desert near #Riemvasmaak, South #Africa, when I came upon this agonizing sight: a large #gemsbok (#Oryx #gazella) caught in a rancher’s barbed wire fence. Meant of course to keep cattle in and predators out, the fence became an inadvertent death trap for many animals: I’d see about a dozen more fence casualties in the region, including more #antelope, #gazelle, and even raptors. A sad situation with no easy solution. Day 4 of the #challengeonnaturephotography. #southafrica #everydayafrica #barbedwire #wildlifephotos #wildlife #NatureAddict #naturephotos
