Lioness 1, Warthog 0


By a stroke of luck Id just flipped my camera over to 8fps mode and aimed it in the general direction of this lone warthog.
Oddly, this was the only animal willing to approach the waterhole. The reason quickly became all too apparent...
Just after it was caught, the mother's two cubs came out and 'played' with the hog
for around 30mins before the actual kill. A hunting lesson I suppose.

Nikon D200
1/320s f/10.0 at 200.0mm iso125 full exif

This is a wonerful gallery, full of very impressive images. It has been my dream for quite some time now to photograph in Africa. Thank you for sharing. Inspirational.
