Drone Footage Shows Incredible Views Of Serengeti Wildlife
Nature is beautiful, isn't it? It's not everyday that you get to witness the natural state. The animals, the plants, the wild. Everything about it is mesmerizing. It has the ability to be the most beautiful thing ever, but in some instances, it can contain the most dangerous things to life. Walking that fine line between the two creates for surreal moments to be captured, just like this fantastic one. Isn't nature amazing?
A British wildlife photographer has captured stunning new shots of Africa - using a homemade helicopter drone. Will Burrard-Lucas, 34, spent five months building and learning to fly the BeetleCopter before taking it out from a spin in the Serengeti in Tanzania. He was able to capture sweeping scenes of migrating wildebeest and antelope as well as intimate shots of giraffe and hyena.
Will is a British wildlife photographer and entrepreneur, known for developing devices, such as the BeetleCam and camera traps, which enable him to capture close-up photographs of wildlife. He created BeetleCam in 2009, a remote-control camera buggy, and used it to take close-up photographs of elephants, lions and buffalo in Tanzania.
You never know what you're going to find when you venture out into the wild as a photographer or explorer. You can have an idea of what you are looking for, but nature has a knack of giving people surprises.
