Robotic camera meets lion pride

I’m struck by how much the robot looked like an animal itself wondering into the pride. It’s a wonder the lions took as long as they did to treat it as prey.

Why Evolution Is True

Here’s a nice video of a photographer enclosing a Nikon in a robotic vehicle, directing it into a lion pride, and then snapping away remotely.  There are some great photos here, and the lions’ behavior when they first see the tiny vehicle is priceless.

Of course one lion decides to nom the thing, but the camera and its photos survive.
