Superhuman snapper Greg du Toit was so determined to photograph wild lions drinking he sat submerged in their watering hole for three months and ended up catching several diseases - and laid up in bed for months. The wildlife lover had suffered a year of gruelling failed attempts at getting the purrrrfect picture by building hides and digging trenches near the animals' drinking spot - but he always came up short. In a final desperate effort 12 months later the 32-year-old decided to take the plunge and climbed into the murky pool with his camera - giving him a unique 'frog's eye view'.
