Lioness protecting her dinner in the Northern Serengeti.

A lioness came down from her pride's rock to seize an opportunity while the great migration of wildebeest and zebra moved through the Northern Serengeti. Immediately following her kill, baboons began to gather nearby and the lioness was intent on protecting dinner for her pride.
