Lions in an animal park are depicted with trees climbing to cool off in the warm afternoon sun.

The photos were taken by wildlife snapper Vince Burton in the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.

Vince, 46 from North Tuddenham in Norfolk, said: & lions are not known for their ability to climb trees, unlike other large cats such as leopards.

& # 39; Lions are usually heavier and to a certain extent more clumsy. However, these lions in the Queen Elizabeth Park in Uganda have adapted and use tree climbing to cool off in the warm afternoon sun.

& # 39; At the top of the trees they benefit from the shade and also from a breeze that they do not benefit from on the ground.

& # 39; It can also be a result of an attempt to escape from the annoying flies that sometimes afflict them.

Vince added: & # 39; From childhood I have always had a strong fascination for nature. When I received my first camera, it was no surprise that I focused on wildlife.

& # 39; I wanted to capture the beauty of nature. & # 39;
