Lord of the flies


It’s an extraordinarily hot day in Botswana. We’ve been standing in the same place for several hours in the blazing sun. The heat is even too much for the lions. Since the morning, not much has been happening here. The animals lie protected by the trees at the edge of a classic water hole, where they brought down a buffalo a few days earlier. They lie on their side or their back, legs stretched out, paws in the air. Swarms of flies circle all around them. The insects also bother us. Finally, the young male stands up and makes his way slowly to the water hole. The heat shimmers in the background. Almost symbolically, a swarm of flies dances stubbornly around his face.
