Isn't that already outdated? Should have a smart phone or a cloud and 100k photos or something?
Not really. The important bit remains the same.
Quite. That most photographers are delusional about the quality of their work.

That's Dempsey on the right. The Manassa Mauler made it a tough day for Willard:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvCHk_kKpVI
A severely broken jaw was just one of the wounds Willard suffered during the fight. When the fight was over and he was looked at by physicians, it was determined that he also had a broken cheek bone, caved-in by Dempsey, as well as broken ribs and permanent hearing loss. One witness described seeing half a dozen of Willard’s teeth spew from his mouth in a rainbow of bloody mist during the first round.

Camera's can't "see" supermarkets. TV producers often use supermarket backgrounds as props so they can substitute in other scenes, like soothing green backgrounds.

Simply Swank in Georgia (Martinez I think) - Wife went there when we were based in Augusta.

Only reason I know that is because, as part of the lockdown, we were throwing out old credit card receipts the other day and that was one we found!

Must admit we did a double take when we first saw the sign over there.

Interesting. What where you doing in Augusta? I'm here for another 3 days.

I don't get why people find animals killing other animals entertaining, but it seems to be a frequent theme of this thread.

Definitely one of the most amazing predator-chase-and-kill videos I've ever seen. :thumbup:

Thought they would both be dead or seriously injured but the leopard not only survived, he actually went from hanging onto the hindquarters to a death grip on the throat during the tumble down the mountainside ... AFTER the lengthy airtime when they hit the edge of the cliff together.

Once leopards evolve opposable thumbs, we're f**ked.

The longer version, with the aftermath, is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRQXebUBZtI

Start at about 3:40 for the start of the hunts if you don't want the prelims. And of course, you'll have to wear the special glasses* to be able to catch a fleeting, blurry glimpse of her

One French Author (sylvain Tesson) went with Vincent Munier (Great photographer) in Tibet to photograph the fabled snow leopard.


he wrote a book and describes similar hunt technique.

the book only shows if you have special glasses ;)
