[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the lioness who brought down the kudu I showed previously, keeping an eye open for jackals that want to get a meal at her expense and possibly attack her cubs.

You can see all the pictures I have posted from Entabeni by clicking on the Travelogue link on the left.
