Story from behind the lens: Watching Nalangu kill an impala that afternoon was incredible. However due to the size of the kill, it was impossible for her carry it back for the little one. She walked to the usual hideaways and brought him out after about an hour of waiting. As she guided the cub to the kill, I realized we could get an amazing shot of her on her return, from the bottom of a river crossing. We quickly rushed to the bottom of the river bed and waited. She not only walked by it, but she stretched and looked towards us.
