Description: A pride of lions came back from a nightly stalk to look for a shady spot. However, the lions were inattentive and noticed the buffalo herd too late. The buffalo, for their part, noticed their enemies

Story from behind the lens: Even if the lions are considered the kings of the savannah, they have to fear a herd of buffalo. Oxen always defend their own kind, especially when young animals are around. With their mass and strength, they can easily fling lions through the air or impale them with their horns.
