The Masai woman traditionally carries her baby swaddled to her back. She uses the end of the cloth wrapping the baby to swat the flies away from its face. The babies being carried this way seemed very comfortable and content to me.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens, 1/125 sec at f/11, ISO 320 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.
Oh, those blessed flies! Remembering our experience in Morocco’s Sahara! Wonderful picture!
Oh yes, those flies…
