Lions have managed to kill a buffalo, never an easy task, because buffalo are big strong and very dangerous animals. The buffalo herd have returned to the scene of what must have been an epic battle and gathered together a short distance away. They are no longer concerned for their safety because the lions have made their kill and the buffalo know from experience, that they will be exhausted and pose no further threat.
I will attempt to portray this scene on canvas, showing you in a series of photographs how I went about it.
Dust still hangs in the air and the lions will now need to guard the carcass. Hyenas that are never far away will have heard the familiar sounds of this confrontation and will soon be arriving, to annoy the lions with their efforts to steal anything they can.
