These wildebeest are on the march.
Photographs taken near the Serena Crossing Point in the Masai Mara, in Kenya, show the ground thick with thousands of the beasts.
As they make a dangerous trek across Africa during their winter they kick up huge amounts of dust.
The animals are also forced to make dangerous river crossings and fight off predators.
Their vast migration was captured by German wildlife photographer Ingo Gerlach on June 7.
Ingo, 63, said: “Every year there is a one-of-a-kind nature display, as around two million animals march in an endless cycle through the savannah in the Serengeti and Masai Mara.
“I really wanted to capture their spectacular migration.
“It’s an amazing sight to behold and at times the earth becomes blocked by a sea of animals.
“You can hear them all calling very loudly to each other.
“It is most remarkable when they come to dangerous river crossing.
“You can tell they are all nervous, but the thousands of beasts keep pushing each other towards the river until eventually they are forced into the water.
“It then becomes a scramble to get across the river and haul themselves out on the other side.
“Sadly some of the wildebeest do lose their lives.”
