We love the BeetleCam. The creation of Will Burrard-Lucas, a wildlife photographer, this hardy remote control camera contraption has found itself among all sorts of deadly critters from leopards to crocodiles and is a perfect example of the way technology brings us closer to wildlife. The images are truly amazing, but some of the most spectacular were captured recently as the BeetleCam was used to get close to a pride of lions just after they made a kill.

Will writes on BeetleCam's Facebook page, "On Saturday, the "Kapamba" pride of lions caught an impala right in front of me! Of course, I immediately deployed BeetleCam to get some close up shots of the action. It was frightening how fast five growing cubs polished off the unfortunate antelope!"
