A lioness drags a fresh zebra corpse into the bushes which she had slain earlier that day. This was shot in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, Africa during a night-time game drive. While this image may seem gruesome and disturbing to some, it was amazing to witness the circle of life firsthand.

This image was shot on high speed 3200 ISO Kodak b&w film.
