The Thief


The prey, an impala, was actually caught by the mother cheetah I posted a few days ago.
This lion we were watching was attracted by the screaming of the antelope and immediatly started walking towards the place of the hunt.
We followed the guy and saw the cheetah first, so we parked the jeep between both cats but, of course, the lion was not intimidated by our presence and stoled the prey at once.

Portuguese Man o'War

Tulum (Quintana Roo), Mexico

The common name comes from a portuguese war ship type of the 15th and 16th century, the caravel, which had triangular sails similar in outline to the bladder of this creature.
