Description: A pack of hyenas feast on the remains of a Wildebeest carcass

Story from behind the lens: In Olare Motorogi Conservancy, daybreak revealed a spectacle of raw nature: a pack of hyenas, eyes gleaming with primal hunger, converging on the remnants of a wildebeest. This fierce feast, witnessed during our stay at Kicheche Camps, embodies the relentless cycle of life and death in the untamed wilderness of the Mara. Watching the frenzy unfold served as a reminder of nature's power and the might of predators in the African savannah. Trying to get a low angle, I leaned out of the jeep to frame the hyenas with their meal.
