A pregnant zebra is nearly airborne as she and others in her group are desperately attempting to escape a hungary lioness. The lioness is seen briefly glancing to her right as she verifies location of two other zebra that split off from group. She continues on in her pursuit but was unsuccessful in the end.
Location: A few yards from the Mara River in the Masa Mara area of Kenya
