A Dinner Party in the Bushveld

We had the perfect example of a meal in the wilds of South Africa.

The Lions made the kill, but as we watched them gorge themselves, we also took note of the other characters gathering for the party.

Female lions makes a kill

First to arrive: female lions who probably made the kill

A juvenile male is still eating his fill
A hyena waits in the shade
A side striped jackal waits in the periphery for a chance, but will have to wait until the lions leave or move away
Vultures gather in a nearby tree creating a beacon for the scavenger community

All photos were shot with my Canon 5D MKIII with a 300mm lens in the Sabi Sands Reserve
