This magnificent picture of an angry lion in the Kalahari desert is proving a roaring success in the rather more genteel surrounds of the Royal Geographic Society.
It was taken by Dutch snapper Marsel Van Oosten and was a winning entry in the 2010 Travel Photography Of The Year competition.
The 2011 event opens for entries tomorrow and to offer some inspiration, the society is hosting an exhibition of the best entries from last year. Categories include Cultures and Traditions, Exotic, Natural Elements and Spirit of Adventure.
