Images like these are rarely arrived at by accident. Likewise it is seldom co-incidence that positions a vehicle right down the barrel of a spectacular chase. It is never lady luck fusing her fortuitous finger with the shutter release either.

When Charles Wandero slides his car down the fall line from a limping rotund ruminant, with a healthy lioness pursuing, you would put your shirt on the outcome.


However, just as predator reached out a foreleg to deliver the coup de grace, the wildebeest, in a moment of Soze-esque epiphany, sprints away, its limp forgotten.

A good story, indeed ‘Spot’ needs a beginning, middle and end. This one has one: a little later the very same cow was spotted with a gangling new-born.
