Dusk is a busy time for the Vumbi pride. As the moon rises, the lionesses rouse themselves from their afternoon naps, tussle in the grass, and set out on the evening hunt. Nichols made this photo using natural light; soon after, he switched to infrared.
Alligator catching a bird. Rare and unusual photo. One difference between alligator and crocodile is the alligator, which can be found in southern Florida, has a short, broad nose; the crocodile has a long, thinner one.
