I don't like its chances: tought preys: one too fast, one too strong. The 2 preys kwnows very well they're safe.
Beautiful trio. Rare shot. Crisp clear. Excellent contribution to TN.
Have you tried more F stops? There was enough light for that.

I think that buffalo would be too much to chew. Well seen story with good composition and detail

A great frame.
Open one of the animals, hunting selection frame.
It's a nice sharing.

Great shot, handled with humor. The young hyena must get more experience to know what's too strong and what's too fast... :) Great trio, nice shot. Tfs.
Best regards from Hungary, László

It is not often, that one spots (excuse the pun) Hyena during the day, in South Africa.
Only once in Kruger, I noticed a female with tiny cubs disappearing in a drainage pipe as the heavens opened for the usual summer-afternoon thunder storm.
Your photo gives a new sense to wallow! The Buffalo looks utterly content - and I wonder, if the cub tried to have a mud-bath?!?
I also find it interesting, that the Bufffalo has it's tail on the back. Have not seen this before.
Have you gone on strike? Have not seen you around TrekNature for a while. Hope you are OK.
