...the trundling motor of an armoured robot called Beetlecam 2 as it sneaks up on a pride of feasting lions...

One day before dawn last August... the machine 50 metres from... to snap this lion breakfasting on a wildebeest- the orange glow of the sunrise spectacularly lighting up its mane.

the robotic camera affords a view of the big cats unlike anything shot from distance with a long-focus lens. "The large depth of field and close-up ground level perspective is one you don't see every day," he says. "You get a real sense of the animal in its own environment."

The next targets of this man-machine duo? Close-ups of leopards and Ethiopian wolves.

The picture is fantastic and the lion just beautiful but that machine looks really big and loud.
