Just finished breakfast one morning

in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. 

A Kudu appears running top speed

along the water’s edge about 50 metres away. 

A few seconds alter an African Wild Dog

comes loping along. 

We watched them out of sight in stunned silence,

then noticed two more Wild Dogs enter

through an opening in the trees.


Our guide told us that the Johnny Come Latelys

were probably supposed to take up the chase.

Due to their late arrival they had

no sight or scent of their mate.

The pair eventually found their way back

to our camp, some 200 metres from where

we first sighted them, and spent precious time

trying to pick up the scent of the third, or first, dog.

the inability of the pair, dogs 2 and 3,

to collaborate properly, in all likelihood

cost them a feed that day.
