BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Photo Story -

Mathoja was doz­ing when Skye found her, ly­ing along a low branch of a nyala tree in Botswana’s Mashatu Game Re­serve. As Skye watched, Mathoja opened her eyes for a mo­ment; over­head branches ad­mit­ted a shaft of light that gave a glint to her eyes, help­ing him cre­ate this mem­o­rable por­trait.
