Extreme wildlife photography MAR 16 2010
Photographer Greg du Toit spent months in the disease-infested water of a Kenyan watering hole to catch intimate images of animals drinking.
Sitting in my hide, I would have to remain motionless for hours as I watched the zebra herd's painfully tentative approach. The sound of my shutter alone, would send them running.
In addition to the photos (larger versions here), du Toit contracted snail fever, malaria (twice), hook worm, and several other parasites.
