A Young Lion Curiously Swats at a RC Car Mounted GoPro Camera

Australian nature photographer Chris Bray captured fantastic footage of a young male lion in Kenya. The lion curiously swats at a GoPro Hero2 camera that Chris mounted onto a remote-controlled car.

As soon as the lion saw it, it locked right onto it and paced towards it, came right up to it, gave it a few paw swipes (claws in, so only curious), and then started to maul it, at which point I drove the RC car forwards and backwards in the hope the lion would let it go rather than either destroy it or run away with it. Just so lucky with this shot, the amazing evening lighting, the angle to the sun, that the lion approached front-on, everything. Very thrilled with the result.
