East Africa in the rainy season is not for the weak of heart. The rain is very heavy, and you are stuck frequently. The grass is high and unless you know what your looking for, you may never find it. From sun up to sun down everyday we studied the foxes. I would not be satisfied until I knew, what they did, and how they did it. I have plenty of patience but they taught me to have even more. All my time spent in East Africa was with an absolute obsession over them. The photographs came hard, very hard. I have never enjoyed my time in Africa so much as I did with them.
