Serengeti National Park - Tanzania

The picture on this card was the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year, a photography competition co-owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth - the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide.   The competition provides a global showcase of the very best nature photography. 
The picture was taken by Michael "Nick" Nichols in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. 
Miguel sent me this card after visiting the photography exhibition at the museum. 

On the back of the card: Nick set out to recreate a time past, before lions were under such threat. Here, the five females of the Vumbi pride in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park lie close together, sleeping calmly, photographed in infra-red.
