Over the last few weeks we shared a few animal photographer stories where either the photographer or the animal (or both) were left unhappy with the random meeting.
Today, we are sharing a brighter story of how Nat Geo photographer Steve Winter got as close to a tiger cub as you can. Almost to the point where the cab licking his camera lens.
Steve has been keen to using a small robotic rover that can accept a camera. As Steve was tuning the rover and camera getting ready for the mission the cubs arrived. It looks like the cubs got curious enough to check that metallic animal (food, maybe? bwaaaaaa)
At that point the camera rover acted both as a camera and as a moving object to capture the tigers’ attention, capturing insanely close footage and photos.
