Ben's Maasai I

By tigertimb
As promised this is one of the massai warriors that was so captivating the tiger in the previous shots.
In celebration of Ben's zoo having been opened for a year, they had a visiting group of Maasai Warriors (alternatively spelt as Masai), but sadly we arrived too late to see them perform Sad
I've a few more to upload, as this was one of a series of candids; trying to find a gap in the hundreds of schoolkids as they mobbed the stall within the large dining hall!
I'm pleased with the anti-shake that let me use the 300mm handheld from across the hall at 1/30th sec, but there's a bit of movement in his head as he spotted me and turned to look just as I took the shot.

All comments and criticisms very welcome
