Taken at ReePark in Denmark, this lioness jumps 4 meters in the air to get it’s weekly feed of raw meat !
She stood there,crouched, bobbing up and down, ready to pounce on her prey !
When she had gained her confidence and raw strength, she simply exploded and took the enormous jump!
She then hung all her body weight,swinging from side to side while digging her claws into the hanging meat until a big piece fell off,leaving her to fall to the ground and run off with her prize.
Amongst lions, it’s the lioness that hunts and finds the food, the male simply waits until the job is done and then comes and enjoys the meal.A scene not uncommon to humans?
Taken with a Nikon D700 and a 70-200mm lens with aa 17mm tc (340mm)
