Lions Drinking

For eight months, photographer Greg du Toit battled horrific tsetse flies, various parasites, and the sweltering heat of southern Kenya while trying to photograph an elusive wild lion. On his website, du Toit retells the harrowing tale, including how he made the decision to submerge himself in a small patch of water to both protect himself from the wildlife and to get the best angle to photograph them.
