B-A-N-G ! Moment of impact!

B-A-N-G!..The exact moment of impact!!! :scream::scream::scream:
.
Even though Nyala are quick, and this male got a fair start, the wyly lioness managed to catch up and deliver the deadly blow!:flushed::flushed::flushed:
.
It’s interesting to see that even at lightning speed, she put her stabilising left paw on his hindquarters, while her right paw administered a perfect ankle tap to bowl the Nyala over…:flushed::flushed::flushed:
.
Unfortunately the two then disappeared behind that thicket, while I dropped both cameras into my lap, and started the vehicle, to move into a position where we could again see the action with an unobscured view.
.
Seconds later, I came into the open area to find her gripping the hapless animal by the throat, administering the final ritual in a cloud of dust!:flushed::flushed::flushed:
