Although a little gruesome to watch, it was facinating witnessing the dynamics of the natural world unfolding before our eyes.

The previous evening we’d come across a leopard and an impala herd in close proximity. Our guide had indicated that he felt sure the leopard would try to bring down one of the members of the impala herd, so we’d check the area again in the morning. Sure enough, the young leopard had succesfully bagged a male impala, but had lost it’s kill to this hyena (Crocuta crocuta). It was an amazing experience to sit and watch as the hyean used it’s incredibly powerful jaws to make quick work of the impala carcass.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
