Wildlife photographer Greg du Toit was so determined to capture the perfect image of wild lions drinking he sat submerged in their watering hole for three months.
The defiant photographer had endured a year of failed attempts at getting the right picture after building hides and digging trenches near the animals’ drinking spot.
In a final desperate effort, the 32-year-old decided to take the plunge and climb into the murky pool with his camera and ended up contracting several tropical diseases.
I do appreciate the pictures that he got, but for what they’re worth in comparison to your personal health and safety, I just don’t see the pay off. Why not put up an automated or remote controlled camera and take pictures from the relative safety of a nearby vehicle?
Also, he looks amazingly none pruned to have been submerged for three months.
