[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My daughter and I, with our tracker and driver, finally located this guy after an hour or more of radio-tracking at the Okonjima Game Lodge and Africat Reserve in northern Namibia. He was asleep beside a freshly killed baby oryx. We quietly approached to within about 5 m and waited for him to awaken. When he did, he gave us a slow long stare, rolled over onto his back and tried to resume sleeping. But, apparently we made too much noise, and he decided to get up and find quieter quarters deeper in the bush. He moved with the elegance and self-assurance of a nobleman... which, in fact, he could easily pass for in many circles!
