|Wildebeest and Flamingos - 1D4, 500 f/4 + 1.4x TC, f/7.1, 1/600s, ISO 400|
I found the Ngorongoro crater both a frustration and delight to shoot. It was a delight because the crater walls can make for very interesting backgrounds, giving images a more unique look than an image of animals on an open plain. I found it frustrating because the park rules require you to only enter after sunrise and leave well before sunset. This means you spend the day mostly photographing in challenging light. One of the things I'm really looking forward to in Botswana is being able to get out during good light and being able to go off-road and get close to the wildlife. You can do this if you stay at the private reserves.
