Judges Comment

This is a great action shot of two of nature’s best sprinters. The light is beautiful and has been nicely exposed while the background trees bring depth and atmosphere to this savannah environment. You have captured such a powerful attitude of this beautiful hunter, locked onto its prey who surely has no chance. Fantastic, well done.

Thank you so much for choosing both my pictures for the mark of excellence award and my congratulations for the winner for his outstanding documentation. My name is Johnny Krüger and I live in Germany. I had lots of luck because I was standing on the right spot with the right camera ready to shoot - the visible part of this hunting scene lasted about 2 seconds.. unfortunately nothing we could have done to support the rabbit.. shot with a Canon 1 D mk 3 and a Canon 70-200/2.8 lens.
