The full glory of the animal kingdom is captured in this series of stunning photographs by award-winning nature photographer David Lloyd.
From the gory to the heart-warming, some of the most beautiful animals on the planet are captured going about their daily business at the Masai Mara, Kenya.
Hungry lions captured with their prey, a cheetah bounding over a car and a bird of prey flying over a herd of wildebeest are among the incredible images taken by Lloyd, a New Zealander who moved to Britain 20 years ago.
Here is a sneak preview of the exhibition, which is in collaboration with sculptor Rosamund Lloyd (no relation), entitled 'Bronze, Black and White, a Joint exhibition with Scuplture', which takes place at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery in Pall Mall, London, between November 18-30.

Wildlife as stunning as this leopard, with its piercing eyes, can't be found in Richmond Park, Surrey, which Lloyd lists as one of his favourite places in the world, along with African countries including Kenya and Botswana
They had earlier been engaged in battle, but these two normally brutal lions appear to be showing each other an unusual amount of affection, although they could just be trying rid each other of a swam of flies which has enveloped them
Lloyd, who describes himself as a fine art photographer, produces, as we have seen, incredible colour photography, but says he prefers black and white, shown here to stunning effect with this snap of two zebras
The end is nigh for this water buffalo as an alligator sinks its teeth into its neck as it crosses the river, in another example of Kenya's, at times, unforgiving landscape
Entitled 'Embracing the Wind', this amazing image of a roaring lion won the Windland Smith's Rice Awards Nature's Best 2012 gong, yet another award for the feted Lloyd
Does a living creature get any more cute than this? This little lion cub looks rather fearful as it rests a paw over a fallen tree
