Not An Animal In Sight

A setting sun and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in the background with wonderful cloud formations and not an animal in sight; what’s a guy to do?  Looking around the parched river bed, I located the skull of a Wildebeest and decided it was going to be the best that I could do.  I placed the skull in an angle that would throw nice shadow off to the left with the setting sun over my shoulder.  After the shots were taken, everyone decided to name our find Fred.  Fred found his way onto the front of our jeep, going everywhere we went for the rest of the trip.  Clearly we were in good hands with Fred on guard.
