untaken

* not taken by force; not captured.

In early morning sun at Lekhubu Island, Botswana,

trying to capture a photograph of the

fast moving small Kalahari Scrub Robin,

was difficult to say the least.

One second it appeared calm.

Then it was off in a flurry of movement and dirt

as it darted away on its next crazy run.

 

After nearly 100 shots I was left with images

of the ground upon which my Robin

was standing a split second earlier

and many others, like this one.

Almost a total miss.

It took patience and perseverance

to capture some half decent images

of my subject.
