See the stunning images in the 4th annual International Drone Photography Contest
The BeetleCam project was launched to get up-close photographs of wildlife in Africa. After the first version was nearly destroyed by a lion, two others were built — one with an armored shell. Burrard-Lucas Photography took them to the Maasai Mara wildlife reserve in Kenya and got these shots. More of the photographs and video footage can be seen at www.burrard-lucas.com/beetlecam.
The contest is accepting entries in one or all of four categories: wildlife, landscapes, underwater and aerials. The grand-prize winner will receive $10,000, publication in National Geographic Magazine and a feature on National Geographic’s Instagram account.
