"When you typically see a caracal on safari, it is darting between shrubbery revealing nothing more than a blur of burnt orange before it disappears into another thicket. "


"I love this photo because photographer Federico Veronesi has really managed to capture this majestic creature in its stride and shown a side of it that’s not typically seen. This gallery issue on The Wilds of East Africa expertly showcases the powerful wildlife that grace the region’s plains in the beauty of black and white. It champions the evocative nature of wildlife photography by blending light, scenery and subject to create some truly captivating images."
