THE BLACK LEOPARD
by Will Burrard-Lucas (Chronicle £26)
Will Burrard-Lucas gets up close and personal with big cats in the wild, taking this photograph of a leopard cub and her mother in Zambia using a BeetleCam, a remote-control camera on wheels
As a child, Will Burrard-Lucas loved Bagheera, the panther from The Jungle Book, and now, as a wildlife photographer, he gets up close and personal with big cats in the wild. This photograph of a leopard cub and her mother in Zambia (above) was taken using his BeetleCam, a remote-control camera on wheels.
Such innovative techniques made him the first in 100 years to photograph a panther, also known as a black leopard, in Africa, capturing night-time images of the rarely-seen predator in Kenya. Reading this extraordinary book, you sense that the panther is his favourite. Well, a leopard doesn’t change his spots!
