    Reported by:

    During a zebra crossing on the Mara River (Kenya), crocodiles caught a zebra and then cut it up and eat the body. Behind the head of the zebra that appears among the crocodiles, there is no more body, completely devoured by crocodiles. The photo was taken from the shore overlooking the place where crocodiles were fighting for their share. We waited for the crossing for several days. Nikon D5 Zoom Nikkor 180-400 F4 X1,4 (180 mm) 1/1000 F5,6 Iso 3200

    From Your Shot photographer David Miller: "Very powerful image and the narrative really brings to light the reality of how truly powerful these animals are and the dangers that animals passing through their world will face. Marvelous image, Jean-Francois! Nicely done!"
