These pictures were taken last year when I was travelling in South Africa. On a night drive in the Kruger Park, our guide spotted some lions off in the bush. As we came closer we could see that they had taken down an adult giraffe and were feeding on it. Photographing the scene was difficult due to the lack of light and distance but these came out pretty well.

Thanks for your comments Dennis. I thinkI was REALLY lucky to see this. I've spoken to people who've spent months on safaris and never seen 20 or more lions together, let alone feeding on a giraffe!
