Majingilane - Male Lion - Hyena Intimidation by 

This guy was just finishing up with a buffalo kill when some hyena were starting to approach. He got up and certainly looked intimating to me! It seemed to have the same effect on the hyena and they kept their distance.

    Great capture, I would certainly have turned tail and ran if I was the hyena. :)

    Wow Micheal…….this is awesome. Nature doesn’t get any more raw than this and the lion has some serious intention in those eyes. Excellent detail. Kathy :)
