The adventures of Beetlecam

night elephantsTo get unique, close-up, ground-level photographs of African wildlife, photographer Will Burrard-Lucas created BeetleCam, a remote-controlled buggy with a DSLR camera mounted on top. The first-generation Beetlecam took amazing photos of elephants, lions, and water buffalo, but was nearly destroyed.

The next Beetlecam was better-armored; in the field it was battered by lions, but survived; the photos offer an extraordinary look at lions. Click here to visit the Beetlecam project.
