Charging Lion This magnificent picture of an angry lion in the Kalahari desert, was taken by Netherlands photographer, Marsel Van Oosten and was a winning entry in the 2010 Travel Photography Of The Year competition.
I love the strong emotions in this picture. Typically the lioness is the one in charge, the one who hunts and takes care of the babies but here she surrenders, gives up her power momentarily to engage to the lion's sweet play.
I was an ocelot. Including the fastest mammal, the ability to roar, incredible hunting skills and stunning stripy and spotted coats, the big cats are some of the most recognised and admired species on our planet.
