Have you imaged what lions often do at night? A British photographer Martin Dohrn is able to capture one night of some lions thanks to a modern device. He and his colleagues deploy “Starlight Camera” technology without artificial lighting which uses both light-enhancing and heat-seeking cameras to pose two groups of lions from Masai Mara, Kenya, East Africa and Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, East Africa.
With the new technique, a series of rare photos are taken to help viewers know the night life of these big cats. A lioness killing a zebra, a male lion feeding on a wildebeest carcass and lions approaching a rhinocero are among precious pictures.
