Over the years, I have spent a lot of time with this particular female as she was not only very pretty but also very relaxed. As a result, her cubs were also very relaxed almost from the moment they set foot outside their den for the first time'

    In the book, Marsel reveals how this incredible image, taken on a windy morning in Botswana, came together. He explains: 'There was a lot of dust in the air, which can create very colourful sunrises and sunsets. This giraffe was annoyed by the red-billed oxpeckers that were harassing it. Every now and then it would violently shake its head, which made the birds fly off, only to return a few seconds later'

    This heart-warming shot, called 'Distracted', was taken in Finland.
