Description

The Mara River is full of enormous 6 meter Nile Crocodiles that are easily capable of making a mouthful out of a full grown wildebeest. It is complete pandemonium as the panic stricken herd rushes across the river. Most make it across, a few do not. From the shore you may not be able to spot the crocs, but the wildebeest know - or think they know - exactly where they are. Sometimes you see exactly what the wildebeest are looking at, more often you don't. But you understand the terror as the crocodiles decide who to attack. I took the image with a Canon 7D Mark II with an EF 100 400 mm F/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM lens with 1.4x III teleconverter. The exposure settings were 1/500 sec, f/7.1, ISO 500, 390 mm.
