        I made this short video during an expedition to the Instituto Terra, an area in reforestation, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Nature photographer, Leonardo Merçon, did a photographic project to photograph the Institute's wildlife. In order to photograph wild animals in their natureal habitat you have to be creative and invent new techniques or even create new pieces of equipment. This video shows his first try and "success" in photographing... well, a wild cat ;)
