Michael Nichols lions

I know from the work of Colin Jackson at the BBC Natural History Unit that you get some fascinating shots using infrared cameras with lions at night. You would imagine that National Geographic would also come up with something impressive when covering the same subject.

Michael Nichols spent months photographing lions on the Serengeti and I'll do no more than direct you to a page of his images (some infrared) on the NatGeo web site ... especially a mesmerising shot of a lion called C-Boy. The accompanying piece appeared in the August 2013 edition of the magazine.

I'll be returning to the annals of National Geographic in future posts as they played a significant role in several historic infrared imaging adventures.
