17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The hunt

A young lion, full after a recent meal from a kill, chases after a Gemsbok. The zebras, which have been standing close by, decided things were getting too close for comfort, and ran off, kicking up a lot of dust, giving the scene an surreal feeling. I don't believe the lion was seriously hunting, but he caused a lot of havock and gave me some great photo opportunities.
