Nice shot, did you do much to keep your camera dry, or was there enough rain to worry about? I'm asking cause we're off to Chobe next week, in the wet season!

Thank you. It was on and off. We were inside a safari vehicle with the top open. This partially shielded us from the rain. She was able to grab a couple of quick exposures before calling it quits and covering things up. I was too busy worrying about my equipment. No damage done. You might consider purchasing a rain cover if you're going there in the rainy season. Another option is a simple plastic garbage bag. Aways a handy items to have. Enjoy.

Very cool shot. The rain does really add to this one. Tell her "a job well done" for me.
