    Warning: slightly image intensive... but well worth it!

    Yep.. this is another thread reminding us that we aren't alone on this tiny little planet. :)

    I saw these pictures this morning and while Louis Armstrong instantly came to mind, What a Wonderful World didn't do it quite enough justice, so I'll let them stand on their own.

    A video of how the camera traps were set up:



    But those pictures... wow.

    There are plenty more of these pics, but this was some of the best of the lot.

    Pretty wild that these animal are just roaming around. haha

    What strikes me about these images is the candid nature of them, the animals weren't expecting to be photographed.


    If I was that lion I'd be pissed, because I'm all night-vision mode, then the flash happens and now its just green dots. lol
