Unwilling to Share

After arriving in the evening at a watering hole in Namibia’s Etosha National Park, Your Shot photographer NingYu Pao witnessed a grisly scene. Four female lions feasted on their kill of a kudu, a type of antelope. However, the smell of blood attracted a group of hyenas to the scene. Outnumbering the lions by four to one, “in the end, the hyenas won and got the prized kudu,” writes Pao. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
