An enormous lion leaps over a stream to avoid getting its paws wet.  The agile predator, which can grow to more than 600lbs, jumps nimbly across the shallow, two metre wide stretch of water.<br />
<br />
The images were captured by wildlife photographer and guide Grant Atkinson on the eastern side of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
