Description: An intense moment of life and death as a lioness kills to feed her young male cubs so their legacy my continue.

Story from behind the lens: A female of a large pride with lots of young male cubs took down this wildebeest on her own very efficiently and in a matter of moments. Her strength was phenominal as within a few strides she pounced on the wildebeest and grabbed it by the neck. It was all over in a few minutes and later when we went back the whole pride was enjoying the spoils - death of one means survival of the others and her male cubs will grow to rule the plains of the great Masai Mara one day.
