In pursuit of the perfect photo of wild lions in their natural habitat, specifically that of lions quenching their thirst, wildlife photographer Greg du Toit went to extreme measures. After a year spent digging and hiding in various holes and trenches near the lions water fountains in a failed attempt to capture the eye level, up close and personal photos, he took the plunge so to speak into the lions’ watering spots. After a total of 270 hours in the water (3 hours per day, 7 days a week), the photographer finally got the pictures he wanted, but not before contracting some nasty bugs, such as malaria and bilharzia.
