Location Lake Eyasi, Tanzania
We had just accompanied the men of the Hadzabe tribe while hunting. When we returned home with only this squirrel it was shared between about 25 people. It seemed like Dad was telling the little one to be patient. This was nearly four years ago but I've always loved this picture so I figured I'd give it another go and made a few alterations mostly by layering in the bottom of the girls' dresses on the r/h side from another picture as this one had an out of focus head in the way.

Exif: F Number: 4.5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.33, ExposureTime: 10/4000 seconds, Flash: did not fire., White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: NIKON D70
