About the Image(s)

We were in the Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania in late September 2017. All of the males turn pink when they are looking for a mate. If they find a responsive female , they do a very unusual dance The mating ritual can go on for hours. Equipment was a Nikon D7200 300mm, 1/250 @ f6.3 iso 1600
