Enormous Masai Mara-Striking Contrast

Enormous Masai Mara-Striking Contrast

Masai Mara reveals again. Now with striking contrast.
Unusual to witness in other wildlife reserves. But a common sight in Masai Mara.
And that sight is of carcasses of animals preyed upon for feed. In this post I
showcase, pictorially, this contrast of captivating topography alive with joyous
animals on one side and perished ones on other side.

A perished carcass. One more life lost. But I admired the lively spirit of vulnerable animals for showing positive attitude and living life to the fullest.

*Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is popularly called as Masai Mara. And locals
call it just Mara. Masai Mara got its name from Masai tribe who inhabited the region
for ages and named it Mara that means spotted land.
