    A friend of mine gets his wildlife pictures the hard way, the number of times he's seen "colleagues" cut corners is amazing, glueing (!) mice to branches to "aid" barn owls swooping in and the likes, weird stuff with snakes, pretty pathetic, really. I am quite sure Greg can chime in, here!

    Yeah, most fish photos in field guides are pinned dead specimens.

    Nat Geo makes up history. I visited a "jail" in the portland sewers. It's really a pizza oven...

    My biggest issue is that the film makers don't include disclaimers stating that the videos depict natural events but have been staged to be able to present them to the public.
