A lion decides he’s had enough of being photographed - and tries to  steal a photographer’s camera. The lion and his pride had been followed  by a film crew in Okavango Delta, Botswana, for days - and obviously  decided it was time to have his turn behind the camera. The lion broke  away from the pride and ran up to the camera  before trying to drag the  camera and tripod away. The photo was taken by British photographer and  tour guide John Sobey, who runs horseback safaris for photographers  throughout Botswana. He said: “He had a good look down the lens and we  watched, amazed. It was only when he decided to try and bite them camera  that the film crew got worried, and shouted at the lion, scaring him  away.”

A leopard leaps onto a Land Rover for his big close up. Sergey   Kotelnikov was shocked when this overly camera-friendly young leopard   jumped onto the roof of his vehicle in Namibia, close to the border with   Botswana. Sergey Ivanov, who snapped the photo from an adjacent   vehicle, said: “My friend was scared. I was frightened, too, even though   I was on the roof of the other car, as you expect it to begin   attacking. But we soon relaxed when we realised that this big kitten was   just playing.”
