Now that American network news and mainstream newspapers like Britain's The Guardian have featured Battle at Kruger, a snippet of life in the raw at a South African watering hole, Texan David Bruzinski has embraced his cyber-hero status.
The guy who in 2004 lucked into what experts say is the best wildlife footage ever recorded comes across as a humble enthusiast. Producers from the (slightly jealous?) National Geographic channel are planning a tv documentary about how these scenes were captured by a mere amateur, and later publicized by a more tech-savvy buddy. So now David finds himself standing out from the herd. Let's hope all the predators keep their distance.
In case you are one of the few who have not already clicked on to see the battle of survival at the Kruger waterhole, it's posted directly beneath this entry. Gripping stuff.
