A heart-warming image of two lions, possibly brothers, greeting each other has been announced as the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 'LUMIX People's Choice Award'.

Commenting on the image and the prize, David said: "I'm so pleased that this image did well because it illustrates the emotion and feeling of animals and emphasises that this is not limited to humans. It is something I think more people need to be aware of for the sake of all animals."
