A flying lion leaps from a ridge to catch a fleeing antelope in mid-air

A lioness makes a daring mid-air interception of this fleeing antelope in a dramatic high speed ambush. Perched on a ridge in the long grass, predators pounced when an unsuspecting blesbok crossed their paths in the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa. Evading the first lion the startled blesbok then leapt from the ridge in a desperate attempt to escape. Only to be athletically caught in mid-air by the second. Crashing to the ground just feet away from an amazed tour group, the big cats made quick work of overpowering their prey.
