Description: A Lioness hunts Zebras at a Mara River crossing in beautiful light. The light and dust created a wonderful dramatic scene.

Story from behind the lens: I always find it wonderful to observe Big Cat behaviour. Some of the times big cats show their brilliance is during hunting. I watched this pride attempt a hunt while the last few zebras were crossing the Mara river. The moment was just perfect as the golden light back lit the dust and created this wonderful scene. I have seen many lion hunts, but I will never forget this one.
