Nice capture. The dust and dirt in the air conveys the mass movement of the herd. A slower shutter speed might have made for interesting blurred movement too.

The thumbnail image doesn't do this picture justice. I'm glad that I clicked on it to see the larger photo. The dust creates the perfect mood to convey the magnitude of the wildebeest's mass migration.
