Whole Gnu You

The challenging and defiant look of a lioness defending her kill. 

Taken in the Serengeti National Park when the wildebeest migration was at its peak, we came across this young lioness just as she pounced on a fully-grown gnu (wildebeest).

Unfortunately, her inexperience meant that the kill was not completely clean, and the poor wildebeest was alive for a good ten minutes as she started eating.

The fresh blood covering her face and muzzle make for a powerful image, capturing the beauty and brutality of nature.
