Photographers usually prefer being behind the camera than in front of it. As a matter of fact, some of them hate being photographed. Well, if you’re one of them, I’ve just found your spirit animals. These owls were caught on camera and they hated it so much that they weren’t afraid to express it in every possible way.
Photographing wild animals from up close can be a difficult or even impossible task. Some of them are dangerous and you’d put yourself into danger if you approach them. The others, on the other hand, could be shy and won’t show themselves if there’s a human nearby.
Wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas has come up with tech that overcomes these challenges. He has designed a few products that make it easy to photograph dangerous and shy animals from up close, without coming anywhere near them. In this video, he talks about his inventions and how they can help photographers get unique, dramatic close-ups of wild animals.
Artificial intelligence is already used in cameras for various purposes, but Resolve and Intel have teamed up and created an AI-based camera that is used for a good cause. Their TrailGuard is a camera that helps to protect endangered species in Africa. It’s able to detect, stop, and arrest poachers before it’s too late.
We’ve seen animals snatching cameras before. While penguins, chimps and polar bears took some selfies, this lioness decided to use a pricey camera as a toy for her cubs. It happened when wildlife photographer Barbara Jensen Vorster dropped her camera, and the big cat snatched it and give her little ones something to play with. Luckily, Vorster had a second camera, so she managed to capture the playful bunch dragging $2,600 worth of gear around.

Well, this is messed up. A warning has been issued that IEDs have been found in Harlan County, Kentucky. The IEDs in question are hidden inside trail cameras. So far, nine such devices have been discovered. Sadly, some have already detonated, permanently injuring at least one member of the public. But officials believe there are more out there.
Outdoor Hub reported in June that cameras were being investigated. Initially suspected that the explosives were a way to deter thieves, the reality ia a little more sinister. The Lexington Herald Leader reported that after a man lost several fingers in an explosion, police arrested Mark Sawaf after materials connected to the IEDs were found in his trash. A note found amongst evidence found at the home suggests he didn’t want to just deter thieves, but maim or even kill them.
