Quotes of Note: Wildlife Photographers

J.A. Hunter was a Professional Hunter that worked as an animal control officer, Hunting Guide and also a Guide for those folks who might not care to hunt, but instead wanted pretty photos of wild species. The following quote from Hunter’s book, Hunter, relates to the latter group:

“Yet I must admit that animals are sometimes remarkably tolerant of picture taking. I have watched in amazement while a group of photographers ducked in and out of brush within thirty yards or so of a herd of elephants…The elephants must have known they were there…After considering the matter carefully, I am convinced that the elephants thought that the photographers were a herd of baboons.”
