Repost from @natgeo using @RepostRegramApp - Photo by @FransLanting A leopard is walking alone through thorny bushes with his whiskers extended without being seen by anyone except a remote camera. When I made this photo on assignment for @NatGeo almost 30 years ago, camera trap technology was in its infancy and cameras used film. It was months before I would see the results of my efforts. Since then my colleagues at NatGeo have pushed the state of the art with remote cameras. @michaelnicknichols has revealed forest elephants like nobody before him; @stevewinterphoto has outwitted cats around the world and they in turn have set the bar even higher for others. And we all pay homage to the wizardry of the engineers at NatGeo’s headquarters who developed the systems that made these images possible. This image is featured in our new book “Into Africa," which has just been released. It is based on our @NatGeo exhibition of the same name and features three decades of work in Africa. To see more images of wild Africa and to learn more about the book follow me @FransLanting.
