The lion king In Serengeti Na­tional Park, Tan­za­nia, no­madic male li­ons took over a pride and killed all the cubs. As a re­sult, the lionesses came on heat and we would watch them mat­ing in the morn­ing. I took this shot when one cou­ple lay in the gor­geous warm light af­ter sun­rise.

1 Swim­ming ser­pent Af­ter spot­ting this grass snake by my pond, I watched it show it­self on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions be­fore div­ing to hunt. I be­lieve it caught some­thing, but it all took place un­der­wa­ter. Lau­rence Hook, Dorset 2 In a spin While en­joy­ing my friend’s gar­den, two fight­ing wall lizards caught my at­ten­tion. I don’t know what hap­pened to the loser, as he was dragged away... Nathalie Serieys, Cham­bourg-sur-In­dre, France 3 Mon­key mettle Dur­ing a trip to Yala Na­tional Park, Sri Lanka, I heard rustling in a nearby tree. Within sec­onds, two fight­ing young grey lan­gurs fell to the ground. An­drew Evans, Dart­ford 4 Mo­ment of calm As we drove slowly past this wa­ter­ing hole in Tadoba Na­tional Park, In­dia, a ma­tri­arch emerged from the woods, with her two subadults. It was a calm en­counter, and a dream come true. Gau­tam Khot, Ban­ga­lore, In­dia 5 Ear to ear While in Kar­iega Game Re­serve, South Africa, I saw a fe­male kudu star­ing right at me and took a quick pic­ture. Later I no­ticed that a sec­ond had framed its head per­fectly be­tween the ears of the first! Philip Yale, Hart­ford
