    Intrepid? Dangerous wildlife photos

    This was posted in one of the other fora I visit. It is too big to cut and paste here, but well worth the visit to view.

    Photographer spends months immersed in a muddy watering hole to get pictures to match his vision.

    Holy crap!!!! Incredible photos. In the third one the lion second from the left definitely has a bead on him. I'm amazed he survived. She looks mean. He would not have had to worry about disease if she and her freinds got a hold of him.
    I hope this is an unusual case for a photographer to go to such extremes, but he sure got the shots.

    Wildlife photographers and war correspondents put themselves in this type of danger on a daily basis. I saw a documentary about National Geographic photographers and the photographers interviewed stated that it was an adrenalin rush to do the things they do to capture an image.

    Now that's what I call dedication.

    I am not that dedicated to risk my life from the unseen nasties in the water.
    With knowledge of behaviour, the animals are one thing, but the bugs are quite another.
