[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There will be blood series No 3
On yesterday's picture the lioness was ready for the final bound to catch the prey. The Gnu only had a fraction of a second to make a decision: go on running or facing the danger. Obviously this Gnu knew that he had no more chance to escape and changed his tactic.
Now it is the lioness that has to make a decision: jump on the throat or abort as it may be dangerous to get hurt which is a matter of survival.
More pictures will follow.

Come ... on Tom! Despite my intriguing amazement, I am running out of patience with this series. It is dynamic and dramatic shot with the arrival of the lioness execution!
A bit of cropping probably can remove some of the grass around! Bravo, may be tomorrow ....
