Alexius van der Westhuizen, a 46-year-old real-estate agent, captured the dramatic thunderstorm that illuminated the night sky as hundreds of lightning bolt in full force. The image is a composition of dozens of photographs taken during three-hour sessions over the course of the summer. Lightning strikes are layered over each other to give the impression the sky is erupting with dozens of bolts at once. Picture: Greatstock / Barcroft Media

This leopard got itself into a prickly situation when it tried to lunch on a porcupine. The feline was resting in a tree beside a road in Kruger National Park in South Africa when the unsuspecting rodent wandered underneath it. After the leopard was injured in its initial attack, it backed off from the porcupine and then went in for a second assault. The porcupine managed to make it across the road but was eventually taken down by the big cat. Photo by Yusuf Chavoos
