In the African bush the age-old law of ‘eat or be eaten’ clearly applies. It is the definition of survival of the fittest. A rare but incredible sighting in the bush is to watch one of Africa’s big cats, or any other animal in fact, on the hunt. This makes it all the more impressive that some of our Africa’s Photographer of the Year contestants managed to get up close and personal with some ferocious felines on the prowl. Here are some of our top picks for exciting hunting photos selected from our incredible submissions so far…
