    Right place at the right time……wow! What an opportunity for a great shot!!!! Great capture!

  • Ruth it was indeed right place and right time,the episode lasted 15 minutes and was witnessed only by three of us,our guide,my son and I.fortunately my son and I were able to capture it ,as very few people will see lions kill a crocodile,including most rangers in their lifetime.
