About time I posted a few.


We watched a clan of 8 or 9 chase a male lion off this carcass and then spend the next 2+ hours fighting over and devouring it. I have a lot of shots from this sighting. Kwando Lagoon, Botswana

Ingwelala, October '14.

Seven Hyena in total on a dead hippo, killed in a territorial fight.

 

We moved off to a nearby waterhole. Lo and behold they all came down shortly to wash and bath - a behaviour I've not seen before.

Hyena Eyes



Photographed at 11:21 am on 7 February, 2014 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.



ISO 100, 1/400 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.



**************************************************************************************************



We took a short detour to observe rubbish being dumped into the Keekorok Lodge rubbish tip. Marabou Storks and Banded Mongoose were there in numbers.



When backing the safari van up to turn around, the rear was directly over the tip when two Spotted Hyenas arrived.



This image was taken when one of the hyenas abruptly jumped up, sufficiently startling me that I nearly dropped the camera.
