Tanzania 2012 Ngorongoro Lion Kill

I was lucky enough to witness and photograph this Lion hunt of African Buffalo. There are some graphic images. The event unfolds in front of our eyes while we were viewing a large pride of lions laying around enjoying the day. They notice the herd of Buffalo across from the 4 or 5 safari vehicles and wander through and around us to set the trap. It was a mixture of emotions sad and exciting at the same time watching the hunt and the killing of the calf.
