In continuation of the lion kill we saw in the Kalahari in November...I know photos like this aren't for everybody. I just found it fascinating to see how the one male, once he took over the eland (which was still alive at this point), started to play with it like a housecat would play with a mouse it had caught.

Though images like this disturb those who don't want to see the antelope get hurt, it is a big part of the natural cycle of life in Africa, and story-telling images like this are what we wildlife photographers crave after.
