17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Medium Rare In Mid Air

With much ease, the jungle puts on a display of raw and unimaginable power. In this high-speed photograph, a subadult male Lion locks on to the back of a Wildebeest after it crossed the Mara river. You cannot escape when you're mid air. The action took place faster than one can count. Even with my camera in burst mode, only one single frame captured this moment between predator and prey.
