No matter how you can describe such a tense moment, there is nothing like witnessing it in reality! You can really feel the tension with all the wildebeests scattering around what was supposed to be an exit for them on the other side of the river. Many end up dying because of the ciaos where they step on each other and cause some of the younger ones to drawn because of that.

If you haven't noticed, the pile in the middle where the vulture is standing, that is something around 20 of the unfortunate ones who didn't make it in the few past days of this photo. There were at least 100 vulture around this scene which were either busy feeding or just waiting for more to get stuck there.

I like the fact that this can be described as a whole scene rather than just one photo on how it can be viewed. Not much about the composition or anything but you really have to many different sides of it. I just hope you are able to view it like that as well.
