The world’s most prestigious wildlife photography competition, Veolia    Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year, has revealed the winning    images from this year’s competition.
The moment by Bridgena Barnard (Nationality - South Africa, Country of    Residence - South Africa). Category: Behaviour: Mammals - Winner. 
"Today, as it’s Christmas Day, we’ll photograph a cheetah kill", Bridgena    announced to her family. They promptly fell about laughing. They had, after    all, spent five days watching a trio of cheetahs in South Africa’s Kgalagadi    Transfrontier Park without seeing any activity. But Bridgena had discovered    that the cheetah brothers had a favourite watch-out dune and a routine. By    driving out at dawn to the spot, she hoped to be in position before rather    than after any hunt. It was a good call. The cheetahs were positioned up on    the dune, only the tops of their heads visible. When a trail of springbok    passed by below, the brothers ignored the adults. But the moment a young    springbok appeared, they sprinted after it, one heading it off, one tripping    it up and the third making the kill. Within ten seconds it was over. The    cheetahs had their meal and Bridgena had a phenomenal shot.
