Protecting the Kill

On a night game drive, we found a pride of lions shortly after they had taken down a large kudu. The dominant male soon took over and started in on the prey while protecting it from the other members of the pride. The lack of light and the constant chaos made the shooting conditions difficult, but I managed to capture this eerie shot of the male pausing during his meal to survey the competition.

Location: Sabi Sands, South Africa
