Capturing close-up images of animals in the wild can mean risking life, limb, and expensive camera to snap the perfect shot. Conservation photographer William Burrard-Lucas developed a high-tech solution that nabs stunning snapshots without the imminent risk of disemboweling at the claws of an angry lion.

In 2009, Burrard-Lucas and his brother developed the BeetleCam, a remote-controlled vehicle outfitted with a DSLR. The BeetleCam has gone through a few iterations since then and the latest model recently returned from a trip to snap intimate photographs of the lions in Kenya’s Masai Mara.
