SANDEEP MALL – ‘Head Hunter’
‘Head Hunter’ This image was shot in the early hours of the day at Velavadar, Gujarat. The photographer, Sandeep Mall, came across a pack of wolves eagerly devouring a freshly?killed blackbuck, when a hyena arrived on the scene and snatched this morsel from the wolf pack. The stocky hyena has been known to stand its ground against larger predators such as leopards in disputes over food. Normally, a hyena would stand no chance against a pack of wolves, but for some reason this daring individual was lucky to escape without a skirmish.
