    These animals have found the secret stash of the orange farmer who dumps the oranges that have fallen from his trees at least 7km away from the orchards to control the breeding of fruit fly. It is the end of a long, dry, winter exacerbated by global warming which makes the winters longer and drier and the summers hotter with less rain in an already dry climate. These animals then behave totally out of character with baboons and warthog still feeding after dark.

    I’ve never seen anything quite like this scene. Everything about it is strange—from the unusual behavior of the animals, to the odd glow that envelopes it all—it feels unreal like a museum diorama.
