Wildebeest running from danger

On our visit to Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, we noticed a large herd of wildebeest grazing along one of the hills that make up the walls of the caldera. Suddenly, the wildebeest started running down and alongside the hill, raising a storm of dust in the process. The reason for this became clear when looking up, we spotted a lion coming out from behind a rock higher up on the hill.
