Sorry, couldn’t resist! And it doesn’t help that I’ve been listening to that song nonstop, for weeks.
But in all seriousness, definitely check out National Geographic‘s “The Serengeti Lion.” During several trips to the Serengeti between July 2011 and January 2013, photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols and videographer Nathan Williamson used cameras mounted on remote control cars to get super up close to lions. The result: amazing access to the big cats. (And their cubs!)
The footage is truly amazing, as is the portal they built to display it. You really feel like you can reach out and pet the majestic felines!
Enjoy—and happy Friday!
