12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Young male leopard chasing Black-backed jackal away from his kill, an African Hare. The chase took three minutes and 56 frames. The leopard caught the jackal 4 times but could not finish him. The leopard finally gave up. They were flying across the Serengeti Plains so fast that this frame captured all 8 legs in the air.
