Hunting with nets is pygmy way of hunting. Their small posture allows them to move around the forest quickly and quietly. First they setup the nets around an area in the forest. After that they start making noises hoping that a game will run towards the nets.
I snapped this photo after the hunt, when we were going back to the village.

A very discriptive photo and caption. I like the tight framing.

A very good portrait of this young woman. I like the pose, using the nets to simulate hair! The colours are so warm and the highlights of light on her face are very well captured. A good close crop, with just enough of her arm in the top right corner to complete the picture. Very well done.

Great shot, Krzysztof,
Wonderful composition and lighting. This pygmy's gentle eyes, soft smile, and scarred face make her a wonderful subject for your picture, and the net framing her head really adds to the overall appearance.
