A Wildlife photographer has come up with a novel way of getting up close and personal with the lions he wants to snap: by luring him with his Old Spice aftershave.
David Yarrow, who was photographing the big cats in Africa, used the smell to attract the animals to his remote cameras to take his pictures.
“After some unsuccessful mornings, we covered the camera casing in Old Spice stick aftershave, as my guide knew that lions were attracted by that smell because the local Masai and indeed colonialists have worn it for years.
“It worked, and the lioness came straight towards the camera against a clean backdrop. A second after this image was captured, the lioness took the camera casing in her mouth and walked 700 yards into the bush.”
