The challenging and defiant look of a lioness.

The challenging and defiant look of a lioness defending her kill. In Serengeti National Park when the wildebeest migration was at its peak, we came across this young lioness just as she pounced on a fully grown wildebeest. The beads of blood covering her face and muzzle make for a powerful image, reminding us that although nature is beautiful, it is also brutal.
