Perfectly-Timed Photos of Animals About to Become Dinner

Call it survival of the fittest or just being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Today we take a look at incredible photos, taken at just the right moment, of animals about to feast on other animals. They show birds, reptiles and mammals about to consume their latest meal. If anything, they’ll will make you happy that humans are on top of the food chain!

This owl was on the north shore of Lake Superior, just south of Two Harbors, Minnesota. We happened to find him as the sun was setting, and in the evening light, we were able to be in a position to see an owl that was hunting when a mouse came out, and the owl was quick to pounce and pick up an evening meal.”
