Wildlife Insight: Jose Fragozo (Portugal) – Nairobi National Park, Kenya

23

This image shows two giraffes and three impalas in the rain in the forest region of Nairobi national park, Kenya, which is also home to the Athi lion pride. I have observed these lions hunting many times in the rain, which possibly explains why different species of preyed animals stay together; it’s a defence mechanism, so they can collectively sense predators better. In this case, however, the lions were far away. The photo was taken from inside a 4×4 vehicle, and the major challenge was keeping the camera and lens dry.
