Photographer's Note

Kenya - Amboseli. On an early morning game drive to spot wildlife as the sun rose, I came across a comotion. The wildebeast were all running like mad - they were being chased by a hyena. The hyena was after the baby of the group - and after a chase that went on for a many minutes (we followed in our safari van) the wildebeast made a wrong move and the hyenas (another one had joined in) made the kill. It was such an interesting event to witness - it felt like something from a discovery channel documentary.

I think I've found a good use for the 'Decisive Moment' category here on TE - the hyena successfully outran the wildebeast and got to eat that morning.

*In the workshop - I've posted a version with the hyena in shot, hot on the tail of the wildebeast.
