Nocturnal Animals of African Savanna

The May/June issue of Science Illustrated has amazing images of “Africa by Night” from British photographer Martin Dohrn. He developed a Starlight camera system and with infared, it intensifies the light of the moon and stars to illuminate his subjects. Dohrn's objective is to film animals at night without disturbing them, so their behaviors are not be modified by humans.

“Night time is rush hour on the plains…” it's seems of like 'Grand Central Station' there are many different species of the warm-blooded herds that can be seen as from as far away as six-miles, on a very black night. A sole group of lion cubs ‘hippo surf,’ the cats grab onto the backside of a passing hippo and then hop along on their hind legs, it sounds funny, but not to the poor hippo; the cats do this every night, nature’s bullies I guess. Dohrn’s 1999 film, Night of the Lion is an example of some of his work, looked for information for you because Science Illustrated does not have the article online yet, but some of the images are here: http://www.discoverwildlife.com/gallery/africa-after-dark-photo-gallery-martin-dohrn and this is a page that explains his background and equipment, Dohrn's photos are amazing so check them out. http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/night-vision-a-new-world-of-wildlife-2134916.html


~Bet this would be a good way to find a UFO on camera.
