River of bones

On Nov. 13, what will likely be the final die-off of the season occurred. Most of the wildebeest herd has now returned to Tanzania, but a small group crossed at a place downstream of where most of the drownings have occurred, and about 220 drowned. We took these pictures about a week and a half after the drowning had occurred, and most of the carcasses have already broken down a good bit, leaving the river scattered with bones.
