Photographer's Note

This picture was taked in an Area of the Okavango Delta known as Duba Plain. The lioness in the picture is running for safety while chased by a big male buffalo. Lions are afraid of the horns of a large bulls like the one in the picture. The size and power of the bull combined with those big horn allow a buffalo to easily kill a lion.

For this reason lions tend to attach only female buffalos and calves.
