Flipping through these shots from nature photographer Tomasz Gudzowa feels like looking through the pages of National Geographic -- only better. This Polish photographer found himself with the rare opportunity to witness and photograph herds of animals attempting to cross the Serengeti region in Africa.

From December to June, thousands of wild animals, including the wildebeests photographed by Tomasz Gudzowa, attempt to cross the swiftly moving waters of the Mara River. Why do these animals dare to cross this river filled with dangerous crocodiles? Wild animals like wildebeests follow the rain.

With countless high-profile awards under his belt, such as the World Press Photo Award, Tomasz Gudzowa is one photographer who will not go unnoticed.

Implications - While photographs of rare animal sights were once predominantly found in the pages of National Geographic, many consumers now yearn for photos with these qualities of nature. Companies that incorporate these escapist features will appeal to a broad base of stressed-out consumers.
