On the Hunt

Photograph by Greg du Toit, National Geographic Your Shot

"It was an early morning on Great Plains of the Serengeti," writes Your Shot community member Greg du Toit, who took this photo. "This baby wildebeest, only a day old, had gotten separated from its mother during the night. The lioness, spotting the baby wandering across the plains, ran after it with composure and grace. The young little wildebeest was dwarfed in comparison and had nowhere to hide on the vast plains."

Du Toit’s photo recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Nature.....beautiful, wonderful, fantastic, mysterious, powerful and also frightening, cruel and extremely dangerous all along the food chain.   Powerfully strong photo!

Sorry but I find this picture disturbing.  Yes, I know everything has to eat but a defenseless baby ready to be mauled to death is a part of life that I would prefer not to experience.
