Big cats - the most masterly hunters. Photographer Peter Thompson was shot in the Masai Mara National Reserve incredible shots flying hunting leopard warthog.
to track down their prey. Warthog does not see a leopard, and does not know what he left to live a few seconds.
Start. By the way, it is a female leopard, and pregnant.
Warthog resembles a wild boar with a slightly flattened, very large head.
warthog Adult females weigh up to 70 kg, males up to 100 kg. Although this still young. And they have a curved tusks, which they can bring problems to any predator.
From the leopard can not escape. In warthog no options, he has to attack, hoping to get lucky.
Then the leopard into the air. It seemed like a predator flying over the helpless warthogs.
The photographer managed to take a unique moment from several angles. Flying Leopard with widely spaced legs. Piggy in shock.
It seems that this is an artistic production rather than actual training.
All. Virtuoso hunting big cats over.
