Video: Remote Controlled Buggy Captures Great Photos Of Lions In Africa

Weโ€™ve all seen how arial drones are being put to good use in capturing some amazing photography and video in remote areas of the world, but the video below puts the same concept to work on the ground. Photographer Chris McLennan, working with engineer Carl Hansen, developed a remote control camera housing that could be driven close to the subjects to get some very cool photos. In this case, that means driving up to a pride of lions to snap a few shots. The results are fantastic, although the images may give you a sense of what it is like for the prey just as the lionโ€™s pounce. This is really cool technology put to use in the field in an innovative way.
