The great eating
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, TanzaniaM
Please do not open the photo, if you can not see any blood!!!

You remember the Cheetah hunting photo. The three brothers were successful. Greedy and hectic they ate their prey before a lion could see the food.

+Paul Pavlinovich Yes, Paul! :) There were many lions in the area, so they had to hurry up. In half an hour they were finished with eating. Thanks for comment!! :)
 
Wow! That look in his eyes, I wouldn't want to try and take his food away! Stunning capture as always +Maggy Meyer Brilliant!
 
Fressen und gefressen werden.... gut getroffen Maggy!

Life & death...you have capture both here Maggy. I can't image your emotions while shooting this scene! How did you ever keep the camera still?
 
+Ada M Such a bloody eating I've never experienced before in the Mara as here. But it was dry season, the three brothers were very hungry!! Thanks for your kind comment, dear Ada!! Wish you also a great week!!
 
+Thomas Katzensteiner So ein blutverschmiertes Essen habe ich bei Cheetahs sehr selten gesehen! Da wurde mir in der Hitze schon ein bisschen anders!! :) Aber es dauerte nur 30 Minuten, dann waren sie satt!! :) Wünsche dir eine schöne Woche, Thomas und vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar!! :)

I can not imagine what was in your heart and your mind seeing this! So impressive!
 
Danke wünsch ich dir auch. Dass kann ich mir vorstellen das dir anderes wurde, Aber die Natur ist brutal ;-)
Hast du vielleicht eine Aufnahme von weiter weg?

Wow! What a capture. Super shot. Brutal, but that's life!
 
Da hat es sich ja jemand richtig gutgehen lassen... Ein tolles Foto +Maggy Meyer, Natur pur! :)
Ich wünsche dir einen guten Wochenstart! :))

+Shane Williams Only a very strong lion or a large group of hyenas they could to steal the food, otherwise no one would have a chance. :) Thanks for visit and comment, Shane!! :) Love your macro shots!! :)
 
+Natascha Sch. Ja, das ist auch Wildlife, sieht aus, als würden Kinder Spaghetti essen oder? Danke, dass du vorbeigeschaut hast!! :)

Oh my gosh. The awesomeness of this photo blows me away! His face says it all. :)
 
+Evelin Inauen Ja, das stimmt, wobei der Löwe normalerweise den Leopard oder Gepard nur tötet, ihn nicht frisst. Er schafft lediglich seinen Futtergegner aus dem Weg. Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und deinen Kommentar, Evelin!! :)

+Sharon Jeannette The death occurred very quickly at the hunted wildebeest. By the camera I'm very close to the action and you are right it was not very appetizing. :) Thanks a lot for visit and your kind comment, Sharon!! :)
 
+Ada M The three cheetahs were very hungry, Ada. I was glad they had after a very long focused on the hunting success. It was very bloody, but I've seen many times before. I was once present in the Masai Mara, when suddenly a small cheetah eating an embryo from a hunting Thompson gazelle in his mouth. As I left, that was too much for me emotionally.

I know it is very hard but in the end these are the laws of life. Thank you for you pictures and stories.you introduce us into a world very little known to us. thank you.wish you a good night. hugs my friend.
 
+Thomas Katzensteiner Ja, davon habe ich sehr viele, aber da ich in der Mittagshitze fotografiert habe, sind die Augen nur schwarze Löcher, weil die Sonne senkrecht stand. Ist man sehr dicht dran, gibt es die Chance noch die Augenfarbe einzufangen. Ich glaube, wir sind viel brutaler als die Natur, Thomas, wenn ich an all die überfüllten Ställe der Schweine, Kühe und Hühner denke, and an ein unnatürliches Dahinvegetieren bis zur Schlachtung. Und dass es Leute gibt, die für unser Essen die Schlachtung übernehmen. Der Tod durch Großkatzen erfolgt sehr schnell und vor allem nur, wenn die Tiere hungrig sind, ein normaler Kreislauf der Natur. Beim ersten Hunting, das ich gesehen habe, musste ich noch abends lange darüber nachdenken, weil ich echt aufgewühlt war. Ich bin beim Zuschauen immer in einem Zwiespalt, einerseits wünsche ich der Großkatze Erfolg, weil ich ihr ansehen kann, wie hungrig sie ist, aber andererseits habe ich Mitleid mit dem gejagten Tier. Dieses Empfinden verliert sich nie. Jedenfalls ist es bei mir nach Jahren noch so! :)

+Sarra Robinson Thanks, Sarra!! But this is wildlife too!! At the next thing I will set a lovely photo and then I'm on the way to Africa. :)
 
Fantastic capture Maggy! What a raw wild moment to have been caught here!
 
Great shot, the look in that Cheetah's eye is so strong "It's MY dinner".

We need to see & understand all sides of wildlife and a successful kill is so vital to all predators, thank you for bringing these moments to us.
 
+Maggy Meyer life is hard enough, like the past few days with 10 > -15 degrees, still no end to see, bugger hell on earth, so we need to have some funny comments as well. Otherwise life would be even more harder!! I refuse to walk the dog with -25degrees!!! With those temperatures I would rather sit beside the chimney with a glass Gluehwein in my hand or better with 2 glasses, oh no, not enough 3 would do the job that I would not freeze outside. Than it is enough alcohol in the blood system. And there it is again "blood" next time write the "blood sign" bigger please :))) Have a funny eve, for myself, I do NOT put any foot outside anymore today :))
 
well this is funny, no G+ cuts out my comment, must be to funny or the word bugger or hell or earth or ...no it is the word "blood" ! :-))) me giggling...very much :) +Maggy Meyer
 
Hi Anette, the minus sign at the beginning and end of the text means that the text is crossed out. If you are removing the minus sign at the temperatures of the text is readable again. Here in Berlin it is also very cold, yesterday it was minus 20 and tonight there will also be so cold. Unfortunately I have not Glühwein! :) Enjoy your evening, my dear!! :)
 
+Evelin Inauen Das freut mich, Evelin, trotzdem ich ja zu 99 % Tierfotos einstelle!! :) Danke dir für die Wünsche, wir steuern wieder auf minus 20 Grad zu!! :) Wünsche dir auch einen schönen Abend!! :)

Das ist ein wirklich außergewöhnliches, großartiges Foto... Und das Leben ist halt so. Die Raubtiere fressen und töten um zu leben +Maggy Meyer

+Maggy Meyer Awesome documentary shot. I know many folks that wouldn't post kill photos. Circle of life I say...Intense eyes on the cheetah.
 
i do find it hard to look at kill shots...as much as i know it is a part of nature...it is a cracker of a shot +Maggy Meyer !!! :-))
 
+AnnMarie Jones I totally agree with your words, AnnMarie, He would like to share his food with anyone. Thanks a lot for your kind comment!! :)
 
+Siri Sieber Stimme dir total zu, Siri! Danke dir für deinen lieben Kommentar und fürs Vorbeischauen!! Wünsche dir einen schönen und sonnigen Tag, leider kann ich die Kälte nicht wegzaubern!! :)

+Athena Carey Thanks a lot for your kind comment!! :) Love your very, very beautiful trees in the snow image!! :)
 
+Wayne Marinovich I agree with you, Wayne! I have even considered if I publish this bloody photo. ;) And even have come to the conclusion that it necessarily belongs to it, to learn about the life of the big cats. I'm not here just to post cute pictures, but also want to show something about the lives of wild animals. Usually there are wonderful situations in the bush and when a big cat is very, very hungry there is even a pleasure if it had by long tactical practice success in hunting!
 
+Kirsten Bowers Thanks a lot Kirsten!! The bloody photo is also part of the wildlife, but I will tomorrow set to compensate for a cute photo. :)
 
+Meg Rousher Thank you for visit, Meg!! I can understand it well! It is harder to see only the picture than when you see the whole hunting followed the success of the Cheetahs!

Realidade animal expressa de forma bela e natural!
 
wow!!! such a strong drama, life itself! Fantastic capturing Maggy! fantastic!
 
Wow, spectacular! So glad you didn't "spare the squeamish" when you posted this. Amazing.
 
+João Oliveira Parece muito sangrenta, mas que é também a fotografia dos animais selvagens. Eu estou contente que você vê dessa maneira, e João obrigado!

+Mikko Tyllinen Yes, it looks dramatic, Mikko, but big cats have to eat too! :) And I think, a wildlife photographer should also show these scenes, but I was thinking long, if I set the photo. But there were no bad reactions. :) Thanks for stopping by and your positive comment!
 
+Shawn McClure Many thanks, Shawn!! It is not necessarily a photo that you want to hang on the wall. :) But it is a fact of life frome these animals!

+Thomas Katzensteiner Bin froh, dass du es so siehst, Thomas, danke! Habe schon geschrieben, dass ich länger überlegt habe, ob ich es einstelle und mich dann doch dafür entschieden, denn es gehört einfach zum Leben der Großkatzen in der Wildnis dazu. Schlaf gut!! :)

Wow! It does not get any more real than this!
 
Smart move on the cheetahs to eat fast, with so many lions in the vicinity.
